Open Sky assists teens, young adults and families struggling with difficult challenges and life circumstances. Nestled in the mountains of southwest Colorado and the Canyonlands of southeast Utah, the Open Sky approach transcends traditional wilderness therapy by emphasizing treatment for the whole family. We provide a life-changing opportunity to discover and create a healthy life that is an intelligent and authentic expression of one’s true nature.
In 2006, Open Sky Wilderness Therapy opened its doors in Durango, Colorado, with the mission of inspiring individuals to live in a way that honors values and strengthens relationships. After more than a decade of operations, Open Sky has worked with thousands of students and family members, driven by the belief that all people have the capacity to thrive.
We chose Durango as home because of its proximity to the spectacular beauty of the San Juan Mountains and the canyon country of southeastern Utah where we conduct our field operations. With white-capped mountain peaks in the summer and warm desert sun in the winter, there is no better place to experience the power of nature to heal and reestablish one’s sense of purpose.
