Outdoor Focus

Ashchreek Academy recreational activities are therapeutic in nature and enhance the overall therapeutic experience. Our recreation activities consists of experiential groups and recreational activities specifically designed for boys.

Experiential groups are designed so that the community of boys must use cooperation and use teamwork to gain success. Through planning, experiencing, and finally achieving success the boys learn by “doing”. Participating in and processing these experiences allow the students to learn about the necessity of trust, responsibility, teamwork, and improved self-concept.

Outdoor Activities and Sports

In our experience, our young men need an outlet for their energy and competitiveness plus a way to build confidence and mix up their weeks– this is where our outdoor activities and sports programs come into play. The boys get to participate in a wide variety of on and off-campus activities and sports for fun and relationship building including mountain biking, skate boarding, kayaking, canning, hiking and climbing.

Our proximity to Zion National park, Bryce Canyon National Park, the Grand Canyon and three state parks within view of our campus provides a huge playground of sorts where the boys engage in fun outdoor activities that are therapeutic and confidence building.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy represents a fundamental part of our experiential therapy program at Ashcreek Academy. The central aim of equine therapy is to help our students create healthy relationships based on mutual trust and respect. Many times, the lack of understanding of the importance of “trust” and “respect” is the teen’s core issue. Therefore, “trust” and “respect” becomes the focal point of the therapeutic goal.
