Cultivating a “Growth Mindset” in Wilderness Therapy

Hot Chocolate

When my best friend first tossed the idea my way, I had two competing thoughts, of equal size and strength, immediately pop into my brain. Thought #1: “She believes in you, and wants what’s best for you. She wants to have a fun experience together.” Thought #2: “She is a lunatic, and even after being friends for 35 years, she is clearly trying to kill me.” Read more

Let’s play pretend.

I’m in the market for a lavish mansion. So I trust the agent who knows every little detail about this house. My car broke down and I know nothing about vehicles, aside from how to drive one and how to fill it with gas. So I take the advice from the neighborhood mechanic. The invitations for my wedding need to be perfect, customizable, and within my budget. So I follow the suggestions of the wise paper consultant with years of experience. Continue Reading

Food that we use in our Wilderness therapy Programs

food in Blue Ridge wilderness

The traditional backpacker’s diet is known for dried meat, pasta, beans, and grains. Not exactly a rainbow of colorful fruits and veggies! At Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness our pursuit of the best possible nutrition for our students is constantly evolving. We work alongside a nutritionist to identify the optimal combination of calorie density, nutrients, protein, and carbohydrates to support the activity of backpacking without loading up on sugar and processed foods. This is challenging, because we also have the concern of weight as well as traditional foodie favorites of our staff and students.

University-Model High School for the Liberated Youth

self directed learning

Did you know that George Washington Carver was the local “plant doctor” before he turned 13? Or that George Washington was a land surveyor in his teenage years? Or that Laura Ingalls Wilder began her teaching career prior to her 16th birthday? These teens were not much different than ours today. They were passionate about something, yet they had the freedom to pursue their passion.

You’ve been hearing a lot from us about…the Makarios Path to Self-Directed Learning...How we Approach Education at Makarios…breaking the Repetition Cycle so often found in traditional education...and the similarities between Finland’s top-ranking education system and Democratic Free schools. And these are all great examples of this model’s success, but what about the high school student that has struck out on their own, or (gasp!) dropped-out of school?
