Program Description

WinGate utilizes a strengths based approach to recognize potential in even the most challenging of students. Proper, thorough assessment coupled with proven treatment strategies implemented in a supportive environment, create the WinGate difference. It begins with our deep–seated belief that every student is unique, gifted, and capable of dramatic emotional and behavioral transformation.

As a result, we seek to provide a nurturing yet challenging environment where students can grow, gain perspective, and attain a new level of maturity, while addressing their specific behavioral issues and problems. We combined the best practices of the wilderness with the best clinical techniques in order to take wilderness therapy to a dramatically higher level of integration and results.
