The True North experience is centered on building success and maturity through personal responsibility. Vermont’s outdoor environment provides natural challenges that students must address in order to progress through the program. Students live in small groups where they are able to establish close relationships and receive the individual attention they need from our staff. Students are responsible for maintaining their environment, self-care, and contributing to the needs of their group. Adolescents enjoy hiking or snowshoeing, backpacking, camping, and learning outdoor skills as they work on individual goals and participate in the group dynamic.
