           "turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones...
                                         learning along the way!"


The Healing Forest Institute, Inc program serves middle school girls, regardless of residence, ethnic or economic background, who are physically able and willing to participate in the program, 100% as designed.


The Summer Travel Adventure program is not appropriate for students who are unwilling to participate or who require a smaller adult/child ratio than we can provide. The program may prove physically challenging due to the intense daily schedule, the remote locations, the physical nature of the outdoor program activities, and the travel schedule. Students with special considerations are considered on a case by case basis.


Program eligibility includes middle school girls, who are entering Grades 5 - 8. Students  may participate in scheduled programs as listed,  Weekend Retreats, or the signature Summer Travel Adventure, if eligible.


Students are primarily identified and referred through schools and community based programs, although registration is open to all. We ask that each new student applicant submit a letter of support from a teacher or school counselor.


The school representative should email their letter of support to [email protected] and indicate "Letter of Student Support" in the heading. 



Enrollment for the travel component of the Summer Travel Adventure Program is closed until further notice due to Covid-19.

  The Healing Forest Institute is using UltraCamp, a web based  software as its online registration portal.
Once your registration account is open, forms, payment and fees may be made through this system.


Please note that receipt of payment will indicate Ultra Camp and not The Healing Forest Institute.
