Journey Skills For Life
Adventure Therapy Services
Journey Skills For Life Internationally recognized as an innovative provider of wilderness and adventure-based programming within an outpatient setting, Journey is OMNI Youth Services’ wilderness therapy program. Under the guidance of licensed professional clinicians, adolescents and/or families are challenged in outdoor settings. During a Journey experience, the wilderness confronts youth and families with the natural consequences of their good and bad decisions.
Outdoor Wilderness Therapy: Trips vary from a day-long rock climbing experience to a ten day whitewater raftingtrip. Journey trip locations occur throughout North America and feature activities such as ice climbing, backpacking, rock climbing, coastal kayaking, and whitewater rafting.
On a Journey trip, adolescents learn to work with others, improve team leadership skills, develop trust, take appropriate risks, increase self-esteem, and have appropriate fun. These intense experiences allow youth to test his or her limits as well as encourage him/her to set new personal goals. At the end of the trip, the adolescent will experience a sense of accomplishment and achievement and learn to solve problems and apply these skills to their life situations.
Our highly trained staff possess raining and certifications in counseling, wilderness travel and activities, first responder medicine and the use of experiential counseling within a wilderness setting. OMNI earned the Association for Experiential Education’s Organizational Member of the Year Award.
