Welcome to San Juan Wilderness…Experiential by nature

What if you could take the best aspects of wilderness therapy…

…the challenges of wilderness living, along side highly qualified therapists and counselors…

…but do away with the typical drawbacks: a monotonous schedule that seldom changes, backpacking circles in the desert and rehashing mistakes of the past…

…and replace them with rich life experiences, including service learning projects like Habitat for Humanity and trail building, natural science labs and exciting adventure courses like rock climbing, kayaking and mountain biking…

..so that students can take the next step, to explore and embrace their new identity in this challenging and supportive environment.
We help them to reach beyond mistakes of the past and realize their fullest potential for success.

Beyond wilderness therapy…a comprehensive intervention of therapy, real world competence and adventure.
