Scenic Locations of blueFire’s Adventure Therapy Excursions Gain National Attention
The adventure program at blueFire Wilderness Therapy includes excursions to several remarkable locations in southern Idaho that have been gaining recent national attention from media outlets like CNN and CBS.
One of the most effective treatment models for teens and young adults in wilderness programs is one with ancient roots: adventure therapy. But adventure therapy is far from outdated; in fact, a large body of contemporary research confirms the therapeutic efficacy of the adventure model in the treatment of issues ranging from depression and anxiety disorders to trauma and eating disorders.
The team at blueFire Wilderness Therapy has championed the effectiveness of adventure and experiential treatment, with teens and young adults leaving the program transformed into better versions of themselves.
Located amid the stunning landscape of scenic southern Idaho, blueFire’s adventure therapy program takes full advantage of the area’s many opportunities for outdoor excursions and thrilling activities.
Whether canoeing to the pristine waters of Blue Heart Springs, mountain biking in the Idaho wilderness, gazing at the Milky Way from the first Dark Sky Reserve in the U.S., or scaling the craggy granite formations at the City of Rocks, students at blueFire learn to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and build self-esteem.
With guidance and support from blueFire staff and licensed therapists, students gain a new perspective on approaching challenges, form relationships, and experience a sense of accomplishment that boosts confidence.
The research on adventure therapy speaks for itself, which is why blueFire Wilderness continues to offer a wide variety of exciting excursions in some of the most beautiful environments in the country.
