OUTDOOR IDAHO follows the journey of five teens as they spend three weeks at SUWS, one of the oldest outdoor therapy camps in the country.
A lot of times what happens out here is the students come out and this place looks as bleak as it could be. By the end of the three weeks, because the emotional landscape has expanded in so many ways, so does the physical landscape. There is a mirror inside them that they start to get in touch with and what they believe about themselves inside will be reflected on the world. They see a lot of beauty, they see resources, they see potential and possibility in a lot of things that when they first walked out here into the desert they didn't see. And certainly it comes through challenge. It comes through being pushed.
