The Outdoor and Wilderness experience
New England Wilderness an ideal setting for growth
Our central Vermont setting is the ideal launching pad for adventure recreation and wilderness experiences. Many of the Northeast’s designated wilderness areas are under two hours away, while extensive state park systems, national forests, a national seashore and a national park are within a day’s drive.
Groups travel to wilderness areas in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. These locations offer the least travelled areas in the Northeast and give Confluence participants the ability to discover places few venture. The wilderness experience is sought to not only disconnect and rejuvenate but to provide a crucible where emotional awareness and healing can take hold.
In addition to visiting the Northeast wild spaces, Confluence's outdoor behavioral healthcare programming takes advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities in Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond. Our home and neighboring states offer empty ocean beaches, rugged mountains, picturesque lakes and extensive river systems. These resources provide vast trail systems for snowshoeing, paddling, biking and hiking.
Outdoor recreation is an avenue for positive, engaging and fun experiences that support and encourage growth. Through the inherent challenges in these activities, participants gain valuable confidence and build resiliency that enhances the well being of each individual.
