Help for Troubled Girls

Wilderness Way Girls’ Camp, located in the Upstate of South Carolina, seeks to help girls who are struggling in their families, schools, and communities. Past hurts and sometimes current instability have caused these girls to doubt themselves, distrust adults, act out, and question God’s concern for them.  Within the camp setting, girls experience success in life skills and relationships.

What is Therapeutic Camping?

In simple terms, camp is “friendship therapy” at work in a small group setting. Groups of up to ten campers and two counselors learn the values of living and working together toward common goals. Here girls caught in a cycle of failure have the opportunity to experience positive values in action.

The Team

From the first day a camper is a partner in setting goals that will impact her future. Working alongside each camper is the entire camp staff, her family, and sometimes the referring agency. Together we develop a vision for success. Cooperation among partners is an integral part of the healing process. Families recognize that in order to help their campers succeed, they often need to set goals and make changes as well.

Camping with a Goal

Girls come to camp with emotional and behavior patterns that have created problems too big for them to handle at home. Many think, “I’m no good”…and do their best to prove it.

In the freedom of a camp setting and the security of a small group of “built in friends”, campers plan adventures that lead to the joy of self-discovery.
