Pioneers In Family Programming
Our founding vision was to foster growth for the entire family system and we are proud of the comprehensive programming we have in place to support families. Our engaging and therapeutically guided programming involves siblings as well.
Healing and growth involve the entire family at Trails Carolina.
Family Involvement Improves Student Outcomes
Your child’s long-term success is predicated on the support, participation, and growth of the most important people in their life – family. A child that returns home, to an unchanged family that hasn’t developed the skills to support his or her progress, is far more likely to slip into well-worn, negative patterns of behavior. For this reason, we’ve developed a comprehensive wilderness therapy program for the entire family.
Family Programming Opportunities At Trails Carolina
Trails Carolina focuses on the whole family. We offer multiple touch points throughout the week for parents to plug in, connect with other Trails Carolina families, and get support from the Trails Family Team.

Trails saved my daughter’s life. Amanda is an amazing human and a brilliant therapist. I am so grateful to her, Science Steve, and the other wonderful people who could reach my daughter at a time when I could not.

Great life changing experience for our son. After becoming addicted to gaming during covid he was very depressed. At Trails he experienced the wilderness, Science Steve, learning survival skills and top notch therapy and support etc… I highly recommend! This gave our son and our family a renewed family bond full of love and excitement about his bright future.
