In Wilderness/Outdoor Programs
by: Linda Shaffer

We've had many inquiries this Spring for summer programs that contain varying degree of emotional growth. The following is the alphabetical list our research came up with of the choices available to parents and professionals who are looking for emotional growth programs this summer.

Some of the programs run in the summer only, while others run short term programs throughout the year. Some of the programs we have known about and have worked with for many years. And some of the programs are newer on the scene with a staff who bring with them a wealth of experience in this field. If we have inadvertently left any programs out, please do let us know.
