Youth who participate in Wilderness and Adventure-based Therapeutic Outdoor Services expand individual capabilities, develop self-confidence and insight, ameliorate symptoms, and improve interpersonal skills and relationships.


Wilderness and Adventure-Based Therapeutic Outdoor Services are day or residential programs that provide an intensive, therapeutic experience based on outdoor, educational, clinical, and other activities that involve physical and psychological challenges.

Interpretation: WT Standards do not apply to day or summer camps that do not have a strong therapeutic focus.

Research Note: A nationwide survey of 86 outdoor behavioral healthcare programs in 2000 identified four common program models for therapeutic outdoor services. They range from contained expeditions, in which the leaders, clinicians, and clients remain together in the wilderness for a given period of time, to residential expedition programs, which use wilderness expeditions to supplement other services such as residential treatment centers. The length of these outdoor behavioral healthcare programs varies depending on the program model and, on average, can range anywhere from 30 to 300 days; with 16 to 70 of those days taking place on the wilderness expedition.

Note: An organization that uses wilderness experiences to supplement another accredited service may be required to complete the Experiential Education Supplement (EES) in addition to its assigned service standards. See the EES Activities Table - Private, Public, Canadian to determine which activities require the supplement. These organizations are not required to complete WT.

Note: An organization that provides any activities listed in WT 15 must be certified by a nationally recognized authority in the specific activity to achieve COA accreditation.

Note: Please see WT Reference List for a list of resources that informed the development of these standards.
