Boarding Schools
Boarding schools are often an effective solution for many troubled teens and may be the best place for the graduate of a wilderness program. A therapeutic or emotional growth boarding school offers a way for teenagers to continue the treatment they began in the wilderness.

Wilderness Therapy
Wilderness Therapy removes modern distractions and promotes learning through natural consequences. Mother Nature is a powerful teacher!

Military Schools, Boot Camps, or Brat Camp?
Since there are no forms of therapy, children with behavioral or emotional issues don’t get the help they need and often fail at military school. Usually, military schools do not have the educational resources for students with learning disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, Non-Verbal Learning Disorders, and/or Asperger’s Syndrome. Military-style boot camps are a shorter version of military boarding school.

Choosing a Brat Camp
Since wilderness programs provide a strong and powerful psychological and emotional intervention, many families are turning to them for help with their troubled teen or struggling child. However, selecting a brat camp or a wilderness therapy program is not easy an easy task.
