An Alternative To Camp For Troubled Girls From Delaware: What Makes Solstice Unique ?

One of the top reasons that your daughter will have a better experience at Solstice than a camp for troubled girls from Delaware  is our devotion to promoting happy and healthy relationships.

Solstice is located in Utah, but we help teens from all over the United States.

Your daughter’s healing won’t be complete unless she has a group of positive, supportive friends, family, and guardians around her. Therefore, her lessons in relationships begin with our staff. We hire only the best of the best to care for and treat our girls since we want our students to grow to trust and love our counselors like family. Camp For Troubled Girls Delaware

It’s important to us that your daughter develop friendships with her peers as well. Through our adventure therapy program, group therapy, and extracurricular activities, our girls often form long-lasting bonds that persist even after returning to their hometowns in Delaware.

Finally, we want to help your family heal old wounds and move towards a happy future together. We involve families every step of the way in our students’ journeys, as we know that the most important component in your daughter’s healing process will be the involvement and cooperation of her family.

Adventure Therapy

Lessons don’t need to be taught indoors. In fact, some of our students’ best learning experiences happen during their outdoor excursions. During adventure therapy sessions, your daughter will learn valuable and entertaining outdoor recreation skills she might not get to experience in Delaware, such as:

  • alpine skiing and snowboarding
  • cross country skiing
  • rock climbing
  • canoeing and kayaking
  • white water rafting
  • hiking
  • biking
  • camping

These activities might be common enough in ordinary camps for troubled girls, but Solstice turns each activity into a constructive life lesson. Often these activities force girls out of their comfort zones, allowing them to address their anxieties, build self-confidence and develop strong ties with other girls.

Why Should Delaware Families Choose Solstice Over Summer Camps For Troubled Girls?

One of the key advantages Solstice has over traditional summer camps for troubled girls is our holistic approach to therapy. While you might be concerned about a few key symptoms your daughter possesses, we believe that lasting change comes from healing the whole person, and the core of her problems, rather than just handling each symptom individually. Camp For Troubled Girls Delaware

Located in Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City, our program helps girls from all over the country including Delaware. Sending your daughter away from home to receive therapeutic treatment might be the best thing you can do for her and your whole family. While at Solstice, you and your teen will have the time to refocus and strengthen your relationship. Her time away from the family gives her the space she needs to work through her challenges.

A holistic approach to healing means that we focus on the mind, body and soul of the patient. This philosophy is based on a growing body of research that proves the mind and body are intertwined. Whether it is substance abuse or self-harm, our team is specially trained to approach these issues from the source, so that your daughter can begin to heal from the inside out.

Trauma Programming

Many of the girls who come to Solstice struggle with traumatic events from their pasts. We take particular care when treating our trauma patients, and utilize several research-backed therapeutic approaches, such as:

  • EMDR
  • Neuro-feedback
  • Somatic experiencing
  • Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TF-EAP)
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Gender-specific addictions treatment

This amount of trauma expertise usually isn’t available in traditional summer camps for troubled girls in Delaware.

Historically, trauma only referred to catastrophic events, such as sexual or physical abuse, accidents or bodily injury. However, we understand that all traumas, big and small, can have a debilitating impact on our minds, especially for young girls in the midst of their developmental years.

Using our holistic approach to therapy, your daughter will receive treatment that not only helps her to cope with the depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress that her trauma has brought about, but she’ll also receive guidance and clinical support in overcoming the core of those symptoms.
