Programs

Welcome to Northwoods

Where Sustainable Change IS Possible!

Offering 3 different programs, we tailor our services to the individual and seek to best apply our unique methods to help each student identify, assess, and change maladaptive and unhealthy patterns of thought and behavior.

Northwoods Ranch & Retreat 

Residential and transitional programming focusing on helping young men ages 16-28

Northwoods Ranch & Retreat is a uniquely structured, residential wellness and life skills program. We do this by combining the daily responsibilities of a working ranch with outdoor adventure and physical activity.

Our program is specifically designed to mimic real world experiences while focusing equally on the expectations of adulthood as well as the importance of personal happiness.

Northwoods Blue Ridge

Residential and transitional programming focusing on helping young women ages 18-28

Northwoods Blue Ridge is located in the picturesque Blue Ridge mountains, just minutes from a variety of outdoor adventures in Georgia, North & South Carolina, and Tennessee.

A sister program to Northwoods Ranch & Retreat, our Blue Ridge ranch is a uniquely structured, residential wellness and life skills program. We do this by combining the daily responsibilities of a working ranch with outdoor adventure, physical activity, and volunteer work.

Our program is specifically designed to mimic real world experiences while focusing equally on the expectations of adulthood as well as the importance of personal happiness.

Northwoods Africa

A unique opportunity for individuals to explore Africa, immerse themselves in the culture and day to day life, and experience a once in a lifetime adventure

Africa Immersion

60 Days in Kenya living the life, exploring the culture and gaining a new perspective on what is important.

Africa Experience

Our Africa Experience is 14-16 days of exploring Kenya, Africa.

Students receive a guided tour of some of the poorest areas of Nairobi, where they work alongside individuals doing what they can medically, socially, and economically to improve the lives of people in extreme poverty and despair, with no end in sight.

Transitional Programming

Once a student has completed the Residential portion of programming and has been assessed as appropriate for the Transitional Services, they can begin this process immediately. Here we begin a slow progressive step by step process of increasing independence and responsibility while maintaining oversight and guidance into the responsibilities of being a young adult.

 

Tuition costs for each service can be found here on the Tuition & Fees page.
