Intervention Summer Camps

Financial assistance is available through Adoption Subsidy and Scholarships.  Some programs are YIT and Respite eligible.  Call             231-832-7298 for help applying today.


Not sure your kid is ready for camp yet?  Check out our Youth Challenge Weekends for a shorter stay at Eagle Village that offers the same help for troubled teens.  Or try a Family Challenge Weekend to help your whole family navigate through difficult behaviors toward better relationships.

Eagle Village does summer camp differently.  Unlike other summer camps, our summer counselors and staff use techniques specific to kids with past trauma and emotional impairments to deal with:

  • troubled teens
  • defiance
  • extreme anger
  • depression
  • bad attitudes
  • kids that experiment with self-harm
  • and other difficult behaviors

We use our activities, like climbing rock walls and hiking in the woods, to serve as intervention for troubled teens.  Our wilderness experiences teach natural consequences, decision making, trust, self-worth, perseverance, and goal setting.

If traditional summer camps leave you and your teen feeling defeated and misunderstood…

If you know boot camps will only increase your teen’s aggression or crush their self-esteem…

If you need a scheduled respite…

 Consider an Eagle Village Summer Camp

 Call 231-832-7298 or contact intake@eaglevillage.org to get help for your kid today.
