At Kolob Canyon, we believe having fun doing healthy activities is an important part of healing. In fact this is an integral part of the program at Kolob Canyon.  We are perfectly situated for almost all types of recreation. Our students are within an easy driving distance of numerous National Parks including Zion, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Capitol Reef and Cedar Breaks National Monument. There are countless horse trails, lakes for kayaking, deserts to explore and mountains to hike.  Playing hard is necessary to balance the intense therapy that occurs each day.  

Each Wednesday all of our girls experience an adventure day.  Adventures include hiking, swimming, kayaking, skiing, sledding and service projects just to name a few.  Our students regularly attend the renowned Shakespearean Festival in nearby Cedar City as well as many other cultural exhibits and events.  Whether we are hiking or learning improv, we make sure we are laughing and seizing the moments!  Because our therapists go on each and every Wednesday activity, intense therapy can also occur while girls are having fun.  

Once per month girls along with their therapists participate in a 3-day trip.  Trips have included white water rafting on the Colorado river, hiking to Havasupi waterfalls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, kayaking on Lake Powell, skiing/snowboarding at Brianhead Ski Resort and various camping trips to amazing locations.  All of the recreation activities at Kolob Canyon are chosen specifically to teach independence, life skills, teamwork, DBT skills, leadership and problem-solving skills.  Activities are specifically designed to achieve therapeutic objectives while having fun.
