Heal Your Heart in the Hills & Make Your Adventure Meaningful


We believe that the Black Hills are our biggest natural resource for reflection, fun, clearing our minds, and finding our own answers.  Studies have shown the processing and healing effects of being in nature, and we want this experience to be available to anyone. 

Oftentimes, following a Rec Therapy Session, a client will report purchasing their own kayak or going for a hike, having positive results and building confidence in their own resourcefulness.  

There are several ways we offer our Rec Therapy Services.
