The Story so far.
Fire Mountain was established in 2004 in response to parents asking for specialized camps that don’t just entertain, but empower children and teens. Seeing the desperate need for a new kind of after-school, weekend, and summer camp experience, Aaron and Chris, parents themselves and wanting the same for their children, threw caution to the wind, and made the leap of faith.
The results have been nothing short of fulfilling. From the creation of kids camps, and the teen camps, and family programming, the “Bear Tribe” has reached thousands of kids, teens and parents.
In 2010, Aaron and Chris decided to take their work to the next level. Out of their own home, they began to take in teens who were struggling with addiction. The residential treatment center is now a fully staffed therapeutic program offering a mix of the best evidence based treatment modalities to date.
In 2012 they began to operate out of large facility on 40 acres and finally purchased it in 2015. Fire Mountain Residential Treatment Center, located at the gates of the world famous Rocky Mountain National Park serves teens from all over the United States and support families making powerful changes with lasting results.
The kids Warrior Camps, the Leadership Training Intensive and the Teen Rite of Passage run every year.
While every small business goes through changes, one thing has always remained constant with Fire Mountain; support kids and their families. With the help of dedicated doctors, clinicians, mental health workers, administrators, cooks, a few dogs and some horses… the work continues.
