Trails Carolina Launches Video Highlighting Transitions Students’ Experience Throughout the Program
Trails Carolina, a wilderness therapy program for teens ages 10-17, recently released a video on their YouTube channel that provides information and a visual tour of the various sleeping accommodations for students. The video tour can help parents better understand the program and the day to day of their childrens’ experience across campus.
The video highlights each of the three main sleeping accommodations for students: cabins, tents, and yurts. Each sleeping style teaches students a different skill and aligns with the transitional model of the program. Cabin living helps students learn how to live in shared spaces while respecting boundaries and schedules. Tents and yurts provide a setting where students can build confidence in their primitive living skills and helps instill a sense of independence.
“This video will help families visualize where their child will be staying as we head into the winter months,” says Jeremy Whitworth, Program Director at Trails Carolina. “Families who are looking to place their child at Trails Carolina find it extremely valuable to have a better understanding of the setting that their child will be throughout their time at the program.”
Trails’ transitional model provides unique opportunities for students to adjust to changes in their lives. By alternating sleeping arrangements and settings throughout their stay, students learn to navigate the personal and social dynamics of these changes. Varied environments throughout their stay helps students transitioning out of wilderness therapy maintain the progress they have made while in treatment. Therapists work with students and their families to develop a practical and detailed plan for their transition home. Students graduate Trails Carolina with confidence in their skillset and the ability to successfully adapt to each new stage in their lives.
Watch the new video, featured on their transitions model page, to learn more about how varied sleeping accommodations helps support their unique transitional model.
