Overview of RedCliff Ascent

Redcliff Ascent is a therapeutic wilderness program for troubled teens ages 13 to 17 who exhibit anger, irresponsibility, defiance, academic failure, rage, dishonesty, low self-esteem, depression, or substance abuse among other issues.

Located in beautiful southern Utah, the 650 square mile field area for Redcliff Ascent covers a large geographic area and ranges from 2,000 - 7,500 feet in altitude.

The program was established in 1993 and has successfully helped thousands of teens put life into perspective as well as overcome the issues that have been governing their lives.

Redcliff maintains a 1:3 staff to student ratio to ensure individual attention in its programs, which are offered year-round. Each student is given the appropriate gear he or she will need before becoming acclimated to the beautiful environment. During the trek, students have the choice to participate in leadership roles and to gain a better sense of responsibility, problem solving, teamwork, and personal contribution.

Throughout the trek, counselors use the numerous opportunities that arise to explore issues on an individual and group level. Teens are also encouraged to hold each other accountable for their actions. Parents participate in the two-day graduation ceremony.

At graduation teens share their experiences, existing barriers are often broken down, an aftercare program is developed, and doors are opened for communication and respect.

A program is also available for troubled young adults ages 18 to 25.
