TrailHead Camp

THC is a Therapeutic Outdoor Behavioral Health Program. TrailHead Camp is a wilderness program that we established in May of 2016  to provide  therapeutic wilderness programming in the state of Missouri. TrailHead Camps is based on Outdoor Behavioral Health which is the prescriptive use of wilderness experiences by mental health professionals to meet the therapeutic and recreational needs of the participants.

Outdoor Behavioral Health is a growing field where standard “talk therapy” models  are merged with wilderness adventures, such as hiking and rock climbing. For example, here at TrailHead Camps we use our Low Rope Challenge course to teach life skills. The course is designed to foster better communication, teamwork and leadership skills. Later, we process these challenges to apply them to their real world lives, such as family dynamics and relationships.

Our mission here at TrailHead Camps is to help bring the adventures of the mountains home to your students, working together to expose your students and young adults from any background to the unlimited potential of Outdoor Behavioral Health. Either from a guided use of our Low Rope Challenge Course to backpacking the Ozark Trail while watching the trees turn their fall colors for a weekend.
