Adventure Therapy Intensive



This training is designed to cover the primary core training elements needed to begin adventure therapy practice. Built around AEE’s Certified Clinical Adventure Therapist (CCAT) training structure, we’ve designed this training to meet 60 of the 75 required core training hours needed for your CCAT application. The content will span multiple aspects of AT practice: foundations, assessment, intervention, facilitation, technical skills, administration, ethics and values, monitoring, and more! 

The course is centered around a 6-day, 50 hour, in-person intensive located at the beautiful Camp Mary Orton in Columbus, OH. The additional 10 hours of course content will be conducted virtually prior to this 6-day program. Participants will be trained in the clinical and technical skills needed to conduct accessible adventure interventions including games, initiatives, hiking, creeking, outdoor cooking, firebuilding, and orienteering. This course includes one night of overnight camping. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
