    Pure Life Adventure is a Wilderness Adventure Program for teens and young adults in Costa Rica. We provide intermediate level treatment, utilizing traditional individual and group therapy in combination with outdoor experiential learning and adventure. 

    Our three month program integrates adventure type activities such as surfing, rafting, and backpacking with cognitive behavioral therapy which help our students overcome challenges and build a ‘tool box’ for difficult times. We also provide students with opportunities for cultural immersion, community service, and nationally recognized adventure certifications.
