Summer camp might sound fun, but Solstice is more than just a relaxing few weeks away from your home in Ohioit’s a transformative experience that can change your daughter’s life for the better. Camp For Troubled Girls Ohio

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.

Family Programming

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 Ohio 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.

Why Should Ohio 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 Ohio

Located in Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City, our program helps girls from all over the country including Ohio. 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 Ohio.

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.
