Jerusalem Hills offers a variety of therapeutic activities to complement the intensive individual therapy that each child receives. Therapeutic activities that take place outside the campus give the children their first steps towards independence and renewed connection with the wider community. Participation in these activities also provides the children with a sense of control and accomplishment. It gives them the tools to deal with difficult situations, to develop confidence in their ability to shape their experiences, and it teaches them to trust others. These are skills that will assist them as they re-enter normative society and begin to build fulfilling lives of their own.
