The Wilderness School is a prevention, intervention, and transition program for adolescents from Connecticut. The program is supported by the State Department of Children and Families (DCF) in addition to a tuition fee program utilizing a significant private funding base. The Wilderness School offers high impact wilderness programs intended to foster positive youth development.
Designed as a journey experience, our program is based upon the philosophies of experiential learning and is considered therapeutic for the participant. Studies have documented the Wilderness School's impact upon the self esteem, increased locus of control (personal responsibility), and interpersonal skill enhancement of adolescents attending the program.
