Therapeutic Approach for Girls
Camp E-Nini-Hassee was founded in 1969 by Jack and Ruth Eckerd as the first outdoor therapeutic program for troubled girls in the southeast. We provide a positive, strength-based environment for girls ages 12-18 to experience nurturing guidance.
We present a reality-therapy approach in a residential, outdoor therapeutic environment, using alliances with staff and group therapy to provide safety, adventure, and education . Each girl receives individualized treatment and is supported with family services. We provide an accredited education on site with certified teachers and transferable credits.
We help girls considered at-risk who are struggling with school, causing family conflicts, experimenting with drugs, experiencing depression, have low self-esteem, or are exhibiting emotional problems and behavioral issues.
