• Award Winning Course

    Courses are ongoing.

    Second winter session begins the week of March 25th.

    Special events and activities on Saturday's.

    The enemy is isolation. More than 25% of Utah teens are feeling sad enough to consider suicide and 8% report having tried at least once to take their own lives.

     

    As a response, Pivot Adventure has developed an adventure therapy course designed to help students build a compass to navigate through life's challenges. Throughout the workshop, students develop the tools they need to increase their resilience.

     

    Students learn how to turn the struggles they face into learning experiences. By doing so, they can create a better quality of life. This course is intentionally designed for adolescents (12 to 17 years old) struggling with anxiety, depression, suicide ideation, trauma, ADHD, relationships and family dynamics, screen time, and more. Our course is award winning and has been featured at TEDxSLC.

     

    Students participate in at least one adventure activity per week for 8 weeks after school until 6:30 pm.

     

    The course includes 8 guided adventure activities with highly trained guides and Recreation Therapist, course materials, instruction, equipment and transportation. Pivot Adventure does not provide clothing at this time.

     

    Scholarships available through the Taylor Hagen Memorial Foundation. Email us for an application. In addition, we have partnered with FMK Foundation, who have trained students from the University of Utah in Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) suicide prevention techniques. These college students will be mentors throughout the course.

    Contrary to what we usually believe, the best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times. The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limit in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.

     

    Optimal experience is thus something that we can make happen. It is how we respond to stress that determines whether we will profit from misfortune or be miserable.

     

    Forces within ourselves and in the environment stand in our way. Without guidance, this process can take years of trial-and-error. Pivot Adventure accelerates this personal transformation for teenagers and their families by providing a deep view of change.
