Why Choose Solstice Over a Summer Camp for Troubled Girls and assigned female at birth from Wyoming?
As an alternative to a camp for troubled girls and assigned female at birth from Wyoming, Solstice offers our students the best of both worlds. While we have a wide range of fun outdoor activities for our girls and assigned female at birth to partake in, such as hiking, horsemanship and camping, those activities will be used as the foundation in lessons of personal growth, holistic healing, and overcoming trauma and depression.
Solstice is located in Utah, but we help teens from all over the United States.
Traditional summer camps in Wyoming don’t offer the wide range of therapeutic care that Solstice offers its students. Along with our outdoor excursions, our girls and assigned female at birth also benefit from multiple different types of therapy:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Adventure therapy
- Psychiatric counseling
We believe that a holistic approach to healing is the most effective way of creating lasting change for our students. Our different counseling opportunities allow us to not only create the most individualized approach for your daughter’s needs, but also make sure that they are receiving treatment for their body as well as their mind.
Amidst the fun and healing, academics won’t be forgotten. In keeping with our holistic approach to healing, we offer classes in the arts, PE and traditional school subjects so that your child won’t be left behind when they returns to school in Wyoming.

Why Should Wyoming Families Choose Solstice Over Summer Camps For Troubled Girls?
One of the key advantages Solstice has over traditional summer camps for troubled girls and assigned female at birth is our holistic approach to therapy. While you might be concerned about a few key symptoms your child possesses, we believe that lasting change comes from healing the whole person, and the core of their problems, rather than just handling each symptom individually.
Located in Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City, our program helps girls and assigned female at birth from all over the country including Wyoming. Sending your child away from home to receive therapeutic treatment might be the best thing you can do for their 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 their the space they needs to work through their 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 child can begin to heal from the inside out.
Many of the girls and assigned female at birth 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:
- 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 and assigned female at birth in Wyoming.
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 and assigned female at birth in the midst of their developmental years.
Using our holistic approach to therapy, your child will receive treatment that not only helps their to cope with the depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress that their trauma has brought about, but she’ll also receive guidance and clinical support in overcoming the core of those symptoms.
