1. Setting Goals & Action Plan

We help you set clear goals and make plans to achieve them. Our aim is to empower you to develop a habit of setting goals and taking action, which will benefit all areas of your life, even after the program ends.

2. Taking the First Step

In today's fast-paced world, starting on your goals can feel overwhelming. We focus on taking action rather than just planning, helping you turn your goals into real accomplishments.

3. Building Resilience

Getting hands-on and spending time in nature can build resilience and mental toughness. By pushing your boundaries, facing fears, and gaining confidence, you'll be better prepared to overcome life's challenges.

4. Providing Controlled Environment

Understanding mental health challenges of young people, we offer a supportive and controlled environment away from the stresses of city life. We are not a medical facility, hence we encourage you to take responsibility for your own well-being and seek appropriate medical support as needed.

Connecting with a diverse group of staff and guests helps you build vital people skills like communication, empathy, and cultural understanding. These skills are crucial for forming meaningful relationships and navigating social situations in any setting.

6. Broadening Life Perspectives

Exposure to varied lifestyles and approaches to life will broaden your outlook and enrich your understanding of the world.

7. Supportive Community

Connect with like-minded individuals, building lasting relationships and gaining a sense of belonging as you navigate life's challenges with your fellow staff/interns.
