Family Bootcamp, LCSW, Treatment Center in Salt Lake City

Five days that will change your family forever!

Based in beautiful St. George, Utah; the Family Bootcamp provides youth and parents with a life-changing five day intense, therapeutic wilderness experience in the heart of the high desert, majestic red rocks in Southern Utah. A Family Bootcamp is the ideal intervention for families that are not yet ready to place their teen in a long-term residential treatment program but are seeking help learning to manage problematic behaviors that are occurring in the home.

Five Day Wilderness Expedition for Teens

With skilled outdoor specialists guiding them, the youth spend five days learning how to experience the remote, high desert of Southern Utah with only the supplies they can strap to their back. Being unplugged from ALL technology and outside communication provides a strong "wake up call moment" for the youth to focus and take responsibility for the simple day-to-day tasks of their well-being including cooking, caring for their supplies and learning to use only the elements of the desert to live.

Two-Day Intensive Parent Seminar

We don't believe in a "one-sided" therapeutic approach ... with the Family Bootcamp - parents are involved too. So, while the youth are experiencing the wilderness, parents remain in St. George and participate in an intensive two day "Parenting Boot Camp." Under the direction of Daniel Sanderson, Ph.D., parents engage in two days of comprehensive parent training sessions focused on the discovery and disruption of unhealthy family dynamics. Much of the instruction is provided by Dr. Sanderson (Doc Dan), who has become one of the nation's premier Parenting Therapist's, Trainer & Coach. For the past twenty years, Dr. Sanderson (Doc Dan) has conducted thousands of hours of seminars for parents who are struggling with their teens. He is the author of the "Developmental Vacation (TM)" treatment model which provides parents with a unique and completely "out of the box" approach for conceptualizing teen behavior. This approach is important to the parent being able to gain a better understanding of their role as parents and how they will need to disrupt their child's developmental vacation.

Family Bootcamp's Groups

Family Bootcamp

after an eventful day of hiking, learning to build fire with sticks, building a shelter and cooking his/her own meals over a camp fire, your child will experience a feeling that is largely unknown to many youth today. Due to the onslaught of technology, many youth spend their waking hours in front of a computer screen or on a hand-held device, texting, gaming and surfing endlessly. Too many youth today have developed a dependency to being entertained by their technology and have lost the ability to manage the emotional demands of the lives without escaping into technology.
