Evoke Therapy Programs Runs Three Summer Adventures in Oregon and Utah
Parents who are looking for something meaningful for their adolescent or young adult child to do this summer will be relieved to know that Evoke Therapy Programs has some excellent options. Evoke’s Pursuits are designed to fill clients’ time with meaning, adventure, growth, and healing.
This summer, Evoke participants can choose from three Pursuits:
- From June 22-July 19, young men ages 15-17 can count on backpacking, fly fishing, and canoeing in Oregon’s high desert. The boys will traverse mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers, summits, and mountain passes in the Cascades Mountains. They’ll learn technical skills like wilderness navigation and fauna identification, while additionally receiving weekly therapy sessions with an Evoke therapist. Their time will focus on communication, decisions making, and problem-solving.
- From July 25-21, young adult males and females, 18-25, will hike, climb, rappel, and swim their way through gorgeous sandstone canyons in Southern Utah, near Zion National Park. Over the course of the trip, participants will also practice yoga and engage in therapeutic processing and mindfulness.
- From August 29-September 4, young adult men and women, 18-25, will learn how to plan and lead overnight outdoor adventures while simultaneously participating in one. Clients will learn about safety and gear, water filtration, backcountry meal prep, wilderness travel ethics, and more. Campers will also practice mindfulness and therapeutic processing.
“Our summer programming will give individuals the opportunity to dive in and learn more about a variety of outdoor activities,” says Sara Carroll, Pursuits program director. “All of the trips offer some therapeutic skills and mindfulness practices, in keeping with our Evoke philosophy. Then each one differs slightly in what participants will take away from it. Whether it’s technical skills like compass navigation and water filtration, or straight adventures like canyoneering or canoeing, we’ve come up with a range of really great options. We are so excited to offer these memorable trips this summer.”
