Healing Through Nature

Adolescents and young adults today are experiencing an epidemic of loneliness, social isolation, and disconnection. Mental health disorders in America are complex, and sometimes traditional clinical therapy and medication does not work. 

Wilderness therapy and nature-based therapy programs are uniquely equipped to address the challenges of social isolation, addiction, and mental health disorders in adolescents and young adults. 

A fusion of outdoor activities, therapeutic interventions with licensed mental health professionals, and collaborative group experiences combine to help participants overcome personal struggles and foster meaningful connections with themselves, each other and the world around them.

These programs offer participants a variety of safe physical challenges that encourage teamwork and collaboration, teach the value of cooperation and mutual support, cultivate emotional resilience, develop the ability to adapt and thrive in the face of adversity, and empower our youth to handle social interactions with greater confidence and emotional intelligence.

These treatments are expensive, rarely covered by health insurance, and cost-prohibitive to many families. Sky’s the Limit Fund provides direct financial support to families to help bridge this financial gap, and expand access to those with financial need.

Our Pathway to Hope that Heals


Wilderness therapy is very expensive, rarely covered by health insurance companies, and is cost-prohibitive to many families. Believing that cost should not be a barrier to anyone seeking wilderness therapy treatment for their child, Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) provides financial assistance to offset the high cost and enable youth and young adults in crisis to attend one of our Program Partners. Our Partners also provide a reduction in tuition, further reducing the financial burden for the family.

STLF Coaching Services

STLF offers a free, direct service coaching program to the families we help. Our master’s-level therapists provide approximately 12 hours of coaching over the course of several months to clinically approved families to ease the transition home. The STLF coach guides the family through weekly calls, expanding on the gains made while in their treatment program. This direct service is also offered to approved non-STLF families for a nominal fee.
