San Juan Wilderness is a licensed therapeutic wilderness program for boys, ages 13-17. The six to nine week program serves boys with a variety of problems including ADHD, learning difficulties, Bi-Polar, depression, rebellious, angry, defiant, drug/alcohol abuse, adoption issues, attachment disorders, physical/emotional abuse, sexual abuse, etc. It is not appropriate for very high-risk youth such as those who are recently suicidal, psychotic, recently or extremely violent, bedwetting or sex offenders.

San Juan consists of six key elements that include: therapeutic wilderness expeditions, base camp life, service learning projects, academics, adventure education, and individual and family therapy.

Therapists meet twice weekly with students for both individual and group therapy sessions and weekly with parents. The academic component is accredited by the Colorado Department of Education. Students participate in experiential natural science lessons and labs that are taught in the field by a licensed science teacher as well as field staff. Students complete daily assignments in literature and language arts and may receive approximately one high school credit per month of enrollment.
