Why You Should Choose Solstice Over A Camp For Troubled Girls From Nevada
Your daughter deserves the best care possible, and here at Solstice we have the resources and expertise needed to give her the best possible experience.
Solstice is not a camp for troubled girls, but a privately owned, all-girls residential treatment center. We cater to young women ages 14-18 from Nevada and all over the country. We offer our students a warm, welcoming environment that will feel like a home away from home. Our campus is located in a small, safe community, that provides our girls with access to shops, churches and restaurants, as well as outdoor and cultural activities.
Located in Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City, our program helps girls from all over the country including Nevada. 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.
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 at Solstice also benefit from their counselors partaking in their daily activities throughout their stay. Therapists in Nevada, or at a summer camp for troubled girls might not get to be there to help your daughter during her 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 daughter develop healthy relationships with her family and amongst her peers, we also provide group and family therapy, where your daughter can learn to heal and create lasting change.
Why Choose Solstice Over a Summer Camp for Troubled Girls from Nevada?
Summer camp might sound fun, but Solstice is more than just a relaxing few weeks away from your home in Nevadait’s a transformative experience that can change your daughter’s life for the better.
Solstice is located in Utah, but we help teens from all over the United States.
While your daughter is enjoying all the traditional excursions of an ordinary summer camp, she will be guided by qualified, dedicated and passionate therapists who can help her overcome daily obstacles, which will allow her to return home with better means of managing the stresses of everyday life. Many of our girls have significant traumas that we help them overcome during their stays, thanks to this same talented staff of counselors and therapists.
Furthermore, Solstice’s accredited academic curriculum assures that our students don’t miss a beat in their education while staying with us. Many of our students are college bound, and we provide them with college preparations, including tutoring for the ACTs and SATs, that they wouldn’t be able to get in a traditional camp.
Research has shown that the most important factor in bringing about lasting change is whether or not the parents are involved in the treatment process. Therefore, we highly encourage families to not only to stay up-to-date with their daughter’s journey, but to partake in their own journey of personal growth, as well.
Along with regular phone and video calls, we also host family weekends, where parents from Nevada and all over the country can come visit their daughters and see their development in person. For families who are even more eager to be involved, on-site multi-day seminars are available. Many parents have referenced these seminars as turning points in their lives, and in their relationships with their daughters.
It’s easy to talk about change, but we want to see results. By involving a girl’s family in every step of her journey, we can make sure that parents are growing with their child, and that happy, healthy and emotionally fulfilling familial relationships will ensue as a result.
