Genuine caring! In my experience, I didn't see a weakness. My teenage (13yr) daughter was self harming and very depressed. Putting her in the wilderness program guided by these loving, caring, capable people empowered her and was a huge success. She came out feeling like a "bad ass". It was hard and she was not happy at the start but in the end, well worth the challenges. It beats anti depressants or any other "pill". Go be in nature, learn how to survive in the wilderness. Really, who wouldn't benefit!? She was a little overweight and lost that baggage too! Thumbs up from this mom.
