Best service the whole trip! I felt a little sad when we left. You just don't find service like this anymore.

Clean and adequate, but a bit old fashioned. Honestly, it's not that bad, but the looks can be concerning if you aren't used to the area. The price is good compared to alternatives, but if you're overly worried about extra comforts, try something else.

Loved the kitzy little room! I just wanted a place to lay my head and get a little snooze time and this hit the mark. Manager is very friendly and the breakfast was totally fine for an eat and run. Had oatmeal and a plain donut. Didn't do any coffee, so no comment on that. Also, no shower, so again, no comment. Very easy to get to and mountains surrounding the area are beautiful. In the summer, the rates go up considerably ($200 a night + tax), not the $88+ tax I paid ($101).

I was a student at Wingate Wilderness Therapy in 2012. This program changed my life. It took me away from everything that I was dealing with at home. If you're really worried about your child, I would check out Wingate. The program is special because it's not a punishment based program (which is rare!). When I first got to Wingate, I didn't want to hike and I cried quite a lot. Instead of trying to punish me, they made me feel responsible for my behavior. This program taught me a valuable lesson: Your actions affect other people. When I was expressing my desires to not hike or be a part of my group, I put my group at risk. The only way we could get more fresh water was to hike to our next coordinates. We also wouldn't receive our new food if we weren't at our new campsites. Instead of there being a level system, which really doesn't work most of the time, it was a system of honesty. We developed close relationships with our counselors and other group members because we had to work together to make things happen. This program was all about survival and learning to work with other people. And most importantly: Doing things we didn't necessarily want to do. This experience changed my perspective on life because I was used to just simply saying "no" when it came to responsibilities back at home. One of the biggest problems young teens have today is understanding natural consequences for their behaviors. I promise Wingate can and will help your child much better than many of the other programs that are just based on levels and behavior. The problem with the "level system" is kids will focus on their level and how much longer it will be until they can get out instead of accepting every day as a new challenge. This program teaches students to work together and develop incredible skills they will use for the rest of their life. I know that it must be a really tough decision to find the right program, but I know Wingate won't disappoint! I will always hold my memories from Wingate close to my heart and I get excited just thinking about the differences they are continuing to make in troubled adolescents lives.

WinGate was recommended by my daughter's therapist to turn around her direction. It was remarkable and was a signature ingredient in my daughter's recover.

I am a former student of WinGate and being there really changed my life for the better. I find the wilderness to be therapeutic in itself and being out there 24/7 helped me alot. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who needs it.

Wingate saved my granddaughter's life! She was dying from a meth addiction and other self destructive behaviors. She had suffered severe trauma in her childhood that we were unaware of. She received top notch trauma therapy while in the wilderness with no distractions. She was safe and well cared for and describes wilderness as being extremely healing. Her therapist Erin and the rest of the staff are the best! We are incredibly thankful for this program and recommend it to anyone who has a child who is struggling. Don't wait until it's too late!

I graduated from WinGate this morning after being there 8 weeks. I went willingly, and it was the best decision I've ever made. I always assumed nothing would change my behaviors or my desire to live a reckless life, and I couldn't have been more wrong. Wingate truly changed my life. Walt is amazing, and so is my therapist in the program, Erin Grover. I was there for an unmanageable marijuana addiction and an inability to make healthy decisions for myself. I learned to respect myself and others, along with about a million other life lessons. The staff is truly indescribable. They are caring, compassionate, and helpful. The program is intense in terms of being away from home and living in the woods, truly "roughing it", but it's the best experience I've ever had. Your child will also have the opportunity to have a Parent Visit during their stay, and this is an opportunity to communicate with your child in a healthy way, as well as participating in a seminar that will truly change the way you see yourself, your child, and the world. WinGate is an amazing program, and your child will thank you for the opportunity to grow and change there. Thank you to Walt, Erin, Adam, Josh Chipman, Joseph Hardy, and many others. You changed my life, and I will be forever grateful.

If you are reading this, more than likely you are a concerned parent at the end of your rope. You have no where to turn and you desperately need help. Around mid March 2016 I was in your shoes. My daughter had a history of trauma, add/adhd, generalized anxiety, defiance behavior, parent-child conflict and emerging borderline characteristics. This eventually culminated in substance abuse and dangerous, self-harming behaviors in her teen years. After years of individual therapy and partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient services, we had no where else to turn. I found Wingate on Dr. Phil's website in a period of desperation as I scrambled to find solutions to our out of control problems. Wingate was a GOD SEND! It opened the door to solutions beyond anything I could have ever imagined. It is the definitely the hardest, most difficult decision you'll ever make as a parent. But for most teens/pre-teens who are not responding to all efforts at home, it is absolutely essential to begin the healing process and the road to recovery! It is the only way a kiddo can detach from the distractions of their everyday life and take a hard look at themselves, their issues, and the way it is impacting their family system. The Wingate staff are my angels. My daughter, wife and I connected with our daughter's therapist, KJ, at such a deep level. She is modest and says the wilderness did it. But I think it's both, the wilderness and the top notch staff Wingate hires. I've heard similar stories from other parents in the tremendous support system you will inherit if you join the Wingate Family. Wingate is just that, from the bottom of my heart, Family. I can go on an write pages upon pages in this review. I'm just so grateful for this experience and how it has changed the life of my daughter and our family. Thank you Wingate for everything you do. God bless you!

My 15 year old son just spent almost 11weeks in this program & it truly saved his life & restored our family. After a year long struggle with drug addiction & treatment my son overdosed just one week before being taken to wingate & it was the hardest & best decision I ever made. It's not about behavior modification which has failed over & over again but changing their heart which changes them for life. My son is excited about his future, working hard at school, fixing his relationships with the family & friends & planning his future . Wingate works with the entire family, I've never met such an amazing group of people who have dedicated their lives to saving our loved ones.
