“After a couple of days my whole outlook on life was changed. It was an awesome experience. I would encourage any teen to come here.”
– Josh, age 15

“Exactly what my 17-year-old son needed. A supportive staff, diverse group of kids, beautiful setting, meditation, yoga, talks, mindfulness, new friends, and new thinking. Learning to relax and observe your emotions from amazing staff and leaders! Life changing in the most positive way.”
