Gator Wilderness Camp School
5.00 (1 review)
- At Gator Wilderness Camp School we use a wilderness camp setting to provide an atmosphere where boys can work through problems and emotional hurts to work towards wholeness in behavior, emotional and spiritual peace.
- The campers live together in a small group with lots of interaction while they work towards common goals planned out by the group.
- It is this interaction and guidance by staff that the boys learn from life experiences to help others and thereby help themselves.
- Gator Wilderness Camp School is designed after Christian therapeutic camping to help meet these special challenges.
- Our purpose is to help young boys and teenagers reach positive goals they have set for themselves.
- We encourage this by providing qualified staff and an atmosphere of love where a boy can learn about himself and how he affects others around him.
- Some of the boys who come to us have been through other programs, private schools, therapy and special education, and still are struggling to get along at home and school.
- Gator Camp takes a different approach than traditional schools and seeks to reach the heart of the boy.

Thank you for a thorough overview of your program. I hoping that this will be an option for my child.
