The Spark in All of Us

Why the name “blueFire”? Blue flames are the hottest part of a fire, the core, and it represents to us the passion that exists in all of us. Our goal at blueFire is to help guide clients on a personal journey to discover and confront their core beliefs, fears, and realize their strengths, hopes, and dreams.

Many deep and meaningful conversations take place around a campfire. We believe these conversations and connections create possibilities for the future. blueFire Wilderness Therapy provides an opportunity for your teen or young adult to make life-altering self-discoveries, learn through challenges and gain life skills.

Gather, Build, & Ignite the Spark

We utilize fire-building metaphors throughout our wilderness therapy programming. Through a process that we call Gather, Build, Ignite, our clients will:

  • Gather the information needed to help our clients and our team create a specific, personalized treatment plan. The client also Gathers the information that they will need to become aware of themselves and of their actions.
  • Build by having your teen or young adult learn to take responsibility for past actions and start to experiment new ways of dealing with issues, troubles and struggles. Our talented staff serve as guides through this process.
  • Ignite through clients practicing the new life skills acquired at blueFire that will work to improve critical areas of daily life: communication, empathy, service, exercise, adventure, therapy, self insight, to name a few.

Clients will take these new skills with them and utilize them or as we like to say “continue to tend their fire.” Just like a good camp fire is never completed, a client’s journey never has a destination. We must all continue to tend the fires to work with new and past struggles in a positive, impactful way.
