An Alternative To Camp For Troubled Girls and assigned female at birth From Minnesota: What Makes Solstice Unique ?
One of the top reasons that your child will have a better experience at Solstice than a camp for troubled girls and assigned female at birth from Minnesota 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 they have a group of positive, supportive friends, family, and guardians around her. Therefore, their lessons in relationships begin with our staff. We hire only the best of the best to care for and treat our girls and assigned female at birth since we want our students to grow to trust and love our counselors like family.
It’s important to us that your child develop friendships with their peers as well. Through our adventure therapy program, group therapy, and extracurricular activities, our girls and assigned female at birth often form long-lasting bonds that persist even after returning to their hometowns in Minnesota.
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 their family.
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 child will learn valuable and entertaining outdoor recreation skills they might not get to experience in Minnesota, such as:
- alpine skiing and snowboarding
- cross country skiing
- rock climbing
- canoeing and kayaking
- white water rafting
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 and assigned female at birth out of their comfort zones, allowing them to address their anxieties, build self-confidence and develop strong ties with other girls.

Therapy at Solstice
Thanks to our therapeutic foundation, which is built upon principles, relationships and experiential therapy, we take an individualized approach to each of our students.
Not only do we offer extensive one-on-one therapy sessions, but our therapists also work with our students’ families. Furthermore, the girls and assigned female at birth at Solstice also benefit from their counselors partaking in their daily activities throughout their stay. Therapists in Minnesota, or at a summer camp for troubled girls and assigned female at birth might not get to be there to help your child during their day-to-day activities outside the clinical environment. We believe that lasting change comes partially as a result of learning to deal with life’s daily stressors, and our counselors are always there to help with that achievement.
Our team knows that relationships are an important part of healing, and they strive to develop close, trusting relationships with our students. In order to help your child develop healthy relationships with their family and amongst their peers, we also provide group and family therapy, where your child can learn to heal and create lasting change.
