Camping Trips

Students participate in overnight adventure trips that provide opportunities to apply learned outdoor skills and challenge the individual and team dynamics.  During these trips, we focus on problem solving, self-sufficiency, and the value of shared experience.

We travel far and wide. 

  • Mountain biking in Moab
  • Hiking in Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, and Arches National Park
  • Whitewater rafting in Jackson, UT
  • Canoeing in the Uinta Mountains
  • Climbing at the City of Rocks

As clinicians, these trips offer us insight into our students’ progress and growth.  

We Help Families

We can help yours too. Connect with our admissions team today.

A few weeks before the camping trip takes place, students learn and practice a new skill that they’ll be participating in during the camping trip to prepare for their adventures. These skills can  include activities like mountain biking, climbing, and hiking.

Often, therapists and team teachers join the camping trips. These camping trips are great opportunities for therapeutic and academic staff to observe the ways in which students interact within a setting outside of the Solstice campus.

During these trips, students often experience a great deal of personal growth, which looks different for every student. Students express that they have started to overcome feelings of self-doubt, found more space for patience, or gained more confidence. These all contribute to individual students’ development of a renewed sense of self.  

We offer a series of adventure based parent/child trips.  These trips are a great opportunity for parents to spend quality time with their child, create new positive memories, and to practice skills learned in family therapy.
