October is Therapeutic Wilderness Awareness Month!
Throughout the month of October, The Hoppy Brewer will donate $1 from every pint of Fresh Stash by Krauski’s Brewskis that we serve to the Jason William Hunt Foundation to help fund its Therapeutic Wilderness Awareness program which enables at-risk teens to attend therapeutic wilderness expedition treatment programs.
“Many parents are unaware of these highly effective treatment programs. Some teens do not respond to the traditional one on one clinical one-hour weekly sessions. It is our foundation’s mission to help parents become aware and to provide financial assistance as needed” said John Hunt, Executive Director. “We are thrilled to have both The Hoppy Brewer and Krauski’s Brewskis as part of our growing network of brewers helping us spread the word.”
Wilderness expedition treatment programs are developmentally effective in changing lives. Youth at-risk learn to believe in themselves as they are faced with the natural challenges of living in the wilderness for 40 – 80 days while operating within what starts out as a small group of strangers only to become a band of friends. They learn respect for self, respect for others and to accept responsibility for their own actions, teamwork and confidence. With a cost of $500 a day these programs are very expensive.
Jason Hunt had worked as a wilderness educator in several states prior to his death in 2001. His foundation funds selected therapeutic wilderness expedition programs across the country. It is the programs that provide the actual treatment and experience. For more details, visit www.jwhf.org or Therapeutic Wilderness Awareness.
