Enrichment Programs

At Ironwood Maine, a living, learning laboratory is ever present in the form of our 400-acre wooded setting and through the multi-faceted experiential programs we offer. The wide variety of enrichment programs presented to residents are designed to introduce new skills and spark a new interest or passion. Our goal is not simply to provide factual information, but to inspire young people to grow, learn, and thrive.

During their stay with us, upper level resident teens have the opportunity to participate in off-campus field trips and outings such as snow skiing, white water rafting, golfing, canoeing, camping, and hiking — all activities designed to improve their skills and broaden their interests. A number of graduates have continued studies in a favorite new field and aspired to become professionals in the areas of animal training, equestrian, and culinary arts.
