Overview

Children with emotional disturbances make up a large component of youth receiving mental health services. Current treatment modalities include the use of residential treatment, day treatment, or outpatient weekly psychotherapy in individual or group settings. Wilderness therapy is a growing field that also meets treatment needs for children with emotional disturbances. A significant barrier to lasting positive treatment effects for children in this demographic is the lack of family involvement in the children's services. Additional critiques of both traditional treatment programs and wilderness therapy programs speak to the disruption of removing clients from their home environments and the lack of ability to engage or invite family participation. Both traditional and non-traditional programs, such as wilderness therapy, leave a gap in services because they lack transitional or follow-up programs for clients served. In the summer months this gap is most prevalent. What programs do exist for this gap in the summer months are typically school based which carries stigma. A therapeutic day camp program is described that provided effective community based intervention with children classified as emotionally disturbed during the summer months in a fun and normal activity setting.
