Inner Harbour Campus Recreation and Activities

The Youth Villages Inner Harbour Campus provides an ideal setting for outdoor wilderness programs – hiking, caving, climbing and camping – that teach troubled adolescents how to build relationships, trust others, and resolve conflict.

The campus also offers plenty of other recreational opportunities, such as basketball courts, a running track, a sports field, playground, a large ropes course, a lake for canoeing and more.

Experiential therapy is incorporated throughout the campus, breaking through treatment barriers when traditional therapies have not been as effective. Children and adolescents who are referred to Inner Harbour have often been in previous treatment settings and require different strategies to make treatment gains.

Experiential methods help students build positive traits and protective factors such as an increased sense of purpose, pro-social leadership skills, increased interpersonal skills and development of a positive classroom climate. Adventure-based problem-solving activities empower students to develop creativity and insight and then apply these skills to real-life situations and future learning.
