Our Recreational Therapy consists of experiential groups, such as art and play therapy and recreational activities off-campus. Through planning, trial, experiencing, and finally achieving the group goals, the students learn by “doing” rather than by talking. Participating in and processing these experiences allow the students to learn about the necessity of trust, responsibility, teamwork, and improved self-concept.
In addition to recreational group tasks, the students frequently engage in recreational leisure activities so they may explore options that replace the negative activities they engaged in prior to treatment. They often find themselves hiking and canyoneering through Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, and Bryce Canyon National Park. They participate in a variety of local outdoor activities, including 5K events, biking, swimming, dancing and so much more.
They also have the opportunity to participate in typical teenage leisure activities such as bowling, movies, laser tag, horseback riding, and shopping.
These activities are done strategically to help the students make healthy life choices and be engaged in activities they will be able to continue at home.
