“Awakening moments” are those pivotal moments that shape a person’s paradigm and changes the direction of their life. These life changing moments happen every day in the Outback wilderness for staff, students and therapists. While these moments are often small, they have big impacts on the lives of those experiencing them.
These awakening moments are the foundation of Outback.
James, a field staff, learns to recognize the greatness in the students who attend wilderness therapy. Depression and lack of motivation created a difficult environment for this troubled teen, but with the help of James and the other staff at Outback, he was able to blossom and grow and take pride in himself and what he worked on.
