Therapy Can Be Fun

The services offered at Vista Sage encourage each student to work hard every day in school, communication, emotion regulation, and in the mastery of skills that will contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Equally important is the opportunity to get out and to enjoy the outdoors in the beautiful Utah landscape. Each week, your daughter will go off campus with a recreation specialist to enjoy an activity of her choice. We currently offer the following activities:

  • Horseback Riding
  • Equine therapy
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Snowshoeing
  • Hiking
  • Ropes Courses
  • Indoor Rock Climbing
  • Basketball
  • Swimming
  • Camping
  • Animal Assisted Therapy
  • Community Reintegration

Vista students go off campus each week for 4-6 hours at a time to go have fun and to learn new skills. Unlike many programs which may take a large group of 12-16 girls off campus each time, Vista’s recreation specialists supervise these activities in small groups of only 4. This allows more one-on-one time so your daughter can develop self-confidence and competency in her skills. Just as importantly, this also places more attention on safety during these outings.


Social Outings

Part of being at Vista is just having opportunities to be a normal kid. Those that have a level 2 or above are able to go off campus each week to do fun things like bowling, ice-skating, Utah Jazz games, movies, etc. The key to therapy is having a good balance of work, fun, and relaxation.

  • Bowling
  • Ice-skating
  • Rollerblading
  • Laser tag
  • Mini-golf
  • Movies
  • Professional and college sporting events

  • Sorting donations at homeless shelters
  • Community beautification
