Our students are capable young adults. However, something has gotten in the way of their plans to successfully transition to adulthood. At Trails Momentum, we provide the people, place, and experiences that allow young adults to gain insight, practice healthy independence, realign goals and learn new tools to help them launch into adulthood.
Exciting adventure programming, comprehensive clinical services, engaging academic seminars and social interactions with peers combine to create a life-changing opportunity.
Momentum is located on a 800-acre mountain top property with a picturesque trout-stocked lake, private waterfall, student dorms, dining hall, and a myriad of trails for hiking and exploring.
Trails Momentum was created to serve young adults with anxiety, depression, technological dependence, and other issues by helping them transition to independence, increase their confidence, and find new direction.
We help our students acquire new skills that will help them achieve success academically, in their personal relationships, and in other areas of life. Along the way, they’ll learn to engage with their environment, strengthen their sense of self, set goals for themselves, and be independent.
Tucked into the picturesque mountains of western Carolina, our 800 acre base camp features its own mountain lake and is near thriving Asheville. The Blue Ridge Mountains offer plenty to explore, from hundreds of waterfalls to beautiful seasons, hiking, paddling, climbing, and more.
Transitioning between base camp and the field offers students the ability to practice real life change in a supportive environment. While at Sky Valley, students reside with staff in one of the houses on campus. Students participate in daily seminars on interpersonal communication and leadership as well as back country skills & techniques. This makes Trails Momentum a unique young adult adventure and wilderness therapy program on the east coast.
