SUMMER ADVENTURE--FUN AND THERAPEUTIC

We always enjoy Adventure Therapy at Moonridge come rain or shine.  In the summer though, we especially enjoy the adventure that comes our way.  Whether we are hiking the Zion Narrows, cliff jumping at Sand Hollow or Paddle Boarding at Palisades State Park, students are gaining self-confidence as they learn more about themselves while doing hard things.  Our Adventure program is unique because the student's individual therapist accompanies them on Wednesday activities and monthly 3-day trips.  This means that therapists have a unique opportunity to build trust with their students in the beauty of Southern Utah's landscape.  Adventure helps open doors to a better understanding and therapuetic work when a therapist and a student are back in the office talking about clinical issues.
