WinGate is one of the premier wilderness therapy programs in the U.S. Our owner-operated wilderness treatment program is for troubled youth ages 13 to 17. Our life-changing outdoor therapy provides a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment that offers hope and healing to families.

Expanse Wilderness, our young adult branch of WinGate Wilderness Therapy, serves struggling young adults ages 18-28. This program offers an effective and life-changing alternative to traditional treatment programs. For more information on Expanse Wilderness, you may visit the website here: Expanse Wilderness Program for Young Adults.

WinGate Wilderness Therapy is licensed by the State of Utah as an Outdoor Therapeutic Program, and we are a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs. Our purpose is to lead the family back to a pathway of harmony and balance, replacing resistance with responsiveness.

Our synergistic approach combines the life-changing elements of a wilderness experience with the best of proven therapeutic practices. We are here to say to all families in crisis, that "there is hope," and you will find it once again through the life-changing experience at WinGate Wilderness Therapy.

We know the emotional turmoil you are experiencing as the parent of a troubled child. We empathize with the pain, the frustration, the heartache, the chaos, as well as the longing for internal peace and tranquility in your relationship.

You may find yourself wondering when your life will ever get to a state of harmony; and when you will ever have a positive relationship with your child again. We are here to say "there is hope!" And that hope can be found through our wilderness therapeutic outdoor adventure.

When you are a parent of a troubled teen, please feel free to call and speak with our Admissions Team and start the healing process today.
