Adventure Programming

Join our adventure and make the wilderness your office!

We are a locally-owned therapeutic program specializing in therapeutic expeditions and adventures for teen and adult clients struggling with difficult challenges and life circumstances. Come join our staff to help effect change and explore adventure by climbing, rappelling, fly fishing, paddle boarding, low ropes initiatives, and mountain biking.

Elements Program is based out of Huntington, UT. We operate in the San Rafael Swell during winter months and the Manti-La Sal Plateau during the summer months. Most employees will live in either Salt Lake City or Moab.

About Elements Program

Elements Program is a locally-owned and operated therapeutic program specializing in therapeutic expeditions for teen and adult clients struggling with difficult challenges and life circumstances. We operate in the scenic San Rafael Swell (fall, winter, and spring seasons) as well as along the Wasatch Plateau (summer months). Elements is a backpacking program with adventure activities like rock climbing, rappelling, mountain biking, SUPing, fly-fishing, etc. facilitated every 1-2 weeks.

Since 2008, we've been serving 13-17 year old adolescents (assigned male at birth) and adults of all genders. We pride ourselves on having the most clinically sophisticated treatment team which consists of our licensed therapists as well as our Field Mentors. We utilized evidence-based treatment modalities that give our clients a language and skills that are transferrable to life after Elements.

For Fun

Elements employees live all over the state of Utah. We enjoy four truly distinct seasons (hot summers, cool falls, snowy winters, and green verdant springs). Utah is an outdoor adventurer's dream! There is literally no limit to the areas you can explore from the red rock canyons of southern Utah to the rivers that run through our national parks, to the snow-capped mountains of the Wasatch, and the otherworldly landscapes of the Great Salt Lake. We also have lively cosmopolitan cities which offer great restaurants, fun nightlife, theater, live music, and much more. The magic of Utah is that you can have the best of everything: easy access to the outdoors with the amenities of a bigger city.
