Intercept

A wilderness intercept experience helping struggling teenagers find their 

 true north.

HOW IT WORKS

We airlift your teenager out of their current environment, disrupt their unhealthy rhythms, and take them on a 6 day wilderness experience designed to wake them up to what they were made for. Each participant enters our intercept trips with a different story, and so we match them with a mentor for the week who will connect with them throughout the experience. We ask that at least one parent attend as well, and encourage the whole family to participate. Our number one goal is to unlock the potential in your teenager and set them on a path towards a healthy lifestyle. In order to ensure lasting impact we have designed our intercept trips to be a family experience.


BEFORE THE STORM

Every teenager makes poor choices at one point or another. Every parent can only hope their child learns from these mistakes. When a young person's life blows up, it is usually not because of one single decision. It is a string of decisions that collectively created the storm they must now navigate. Maybe your kiddo is just a few decisions away from a life-altering storm. This could be your chance to intervene. Intercept trips are NOT designed for teenagers who have already made that final decision that forever shifted their life's trajectory. The legal system calls these teenagers "at-risk" and usually something major has to happen for them to don that title (multiple arrests, possession, violent behavior, etc.). There are fantastic programs for at-risk young people, and we're happy to refer you to them, but there is very little available for teenagers who are on the brink of blowing it. Our intercept trips exist for the not yet at-risk. Intercept trips exists for the teenagers who have made some mistakes and need to find themselves, those who need to figure out who they are and why they exist.


A FAMILY EXPERIENCE

Unlike most wilderness programs for struggling teenagers where two guides take out a large group, we match trained mentors with our families and keep our mentor to family ratio at one to one. This is an unprecedented approach to adventure therapy. We have found that in order for lasting impact to happen we must include the family system in our approach. We have a uniquely gifted group of mentors, with significant experience working with troubled youth and families that spans decades.
