How is BlueFire different than other wilderness programs?
By immersing the child in an outdoor setting, we remove the distractions and causations of negative feelings and behaviors. This brings about a deep awareness of the your child’s negative path and a strong desire for something different. We utilize a more comprehensive treatment team approach, than other wilderness programs, in creating and implementing specific treatment plans for each child and family system.
Unlike other wilderness programs, at BlueFire, there is a therapist in the group at least four days each week. Also involved in weekly treatment experiences are: equine specialist, adventure activity guides and daily academic work.
We recognize that most wilderness programs operate in such a contained model that it can be challenging to transfer the skills into life back home, in school and among peers. Programs with an excess of structure and expectations foster an environment of compliance as opposed to an environment of growth and learning.
At BlueFire, we provide the opportunity for experiences, exploration and education which produces real, lasting change your child can bring back home and use the rest of their lives. Our utilization of regular adventure activities, combined with the proven methods of traditional wilderness therapy approaches, make BlueFire unique and more complete than a simple wilderness approach. The variety of experiences allows our clients to have a more comprehensive and adventurous experience.
