Adventure Trips are a Part of Our Therapy
Hiking, camping, snorkeling and outdoor activities are usually not a part of the lives of most young people today, but they are with the boys at Treasure Coast Boys Academy. It is through these fun outings that we so often are able to connect with the students and create a relationship in which that student feels safe to be open and willing for change. It’s an easy place to talk, share hurts and pains; then the campfire that evening gives the opportunity to sit around and talk and pray for one another. These trips are memory makers that last a lifetime!
We are committed to taking every student on exciting outings, from ocean and river fishing to camping and hiking.
