Solstice West Adventure Therapy camping trips are in full swing. Solstice West, a residential treatment center for teen girls ages 14-17, will have a total of 8 team camping trips, as well as a total of 3 parent/child camping trips this Spring.
Early this Spring, Solstice West RTC hosted seven students and their mothers on a 4-day, 3-night adventure near Moab, Utah. Misty Mosier (Autumn team therapist), Brittany Harms (Autumn team director) and Stacey Rosenberg (Adventure Therapy Director) joined families on the trip. They hiked, climbed and rappelled in the red rock desert.
“Despite raging winds, cold temperatures, and torrential rain, Solstice families endured, made lasting memories, and rekindled relationships,” says Stacey Rosenberg, Adventure Therapy Director of Solstice West RTC. “The moments of downtime were some of the most powerful parts of the trip. During this time, families were connecting while exploring the boulders around camp, playing Jenga in an 'outdoor living room' or just taking time to sit by the Colorado River.”
During the final wrap-up group, one student reflected back on her experience. She talked about how even though she and her mom fell back into old patterns, the highlight of her trip was finding their way back to each other.
In addition to the 11 different camping trips that will focus on specific skills such as rock climbing, backpacking, whitewater rafting, flat water canoeing, hiking, or mountain biking, Adventure Therapy also consists of off-campus activities every Friday. These off campus adventures often consist of community service, cooking classes, art and community events, marathons & 5k races, volunteering, working with youth, community farming, working with the elderly and working with animals.
