Therapeutic Summer Camp for Girls

A therapeutic summer camp for girls like Evangelhouse offers more than just a short summer program. Therapeutic summer camps for girls tend to be not enough time for girls with emotional and behavioral issues like depression, trauma, ADHD, family discord, and more.

Consider the amount of time it took to develop issues in today’s troubled teen girl. A short therapeutic summer camp lasting only a few weeks will only scratch the surface. Girls need enough time to fully integrate into the therapeutic program. It takes several weeks to just overcome resistance and for a teen girl to accept that they must learn to get along with their new peer group and assimilate into a therapeutic milieu.

Therapeutic Summer Program Staff

At Evangelhouse, we have a fully credentialed staff consisting of licensed therapists, day staff, and access to a psychiatrist and psychologist. Most, if any, of the therapeutic summer camps out there do not have this level of expertise at their disposal. Additionally, staff members at most therapeutic summer camps are only temporary employees. The quality of staff in therapeutic summer camps tends to be lower than at therapeutic year-round programs like Evangelhouse.

Therapeutic summer camps for girls also tend to be quite chaotic. Often, hundreds of young campers show up all at once to new, poorly trained staff. At Evangelhouse, your daughter will become a member of a healthy peer community that is already established in a healthy routine.

Finally, therapeutic summer camps for girls do not offer an academic component. If you enroll your daughter in Evangelhouse starting this summer, she can continue to work on academics while enjoying much fun, outdoorsy activities typically offered at a therapeutic summer camp. If your daughter is behind academically, she can catch up to her peers over the summer and even perhaps get ahead, depending on her level of effort.



Evangelhouse Christian Academy is a Christian boarding school based upon biblical principles.


We integrate professional therapeutic services with Christian, biblical values.


Our licensed teachers with advanced degrees administer a nationally accredited curriculum.


Every student is included as a valued member of the peer group and part of the positive peer culture.


Students learn assertiveness, empowerment, mood management, and character development.


Within each Lifeleaf stage, students have professional feedback to guide their progress and behavior.

Summer Therapy Benefits

Many families find it challenging to commit to a consistent, weekly therapy plan during the academic year. It may feel like there is just one more item to fit into your already crowded schedule—your therapy appointments. This is regrettable since we know from both experience and study that teen girls benefit most and most permanently from regular attendance for about 12 months, which is our typical enrollment period.

Teen girls of today are expected to be more autonomous, more mature, and to have better organization and self-management abilities as they go up the grades. Along with rising societal pressures and shifting class dynamics, there are also rising academic standards. Sadly, schools frequently do a poor job of preparing our pupils for these difficulties. Depending on the teacher and the availability of class time, support in these areas might be hit or miss. Teen girls can get the missing abilities they need in counseling, including organizing, planning, managing bullying, coping with peer pressure, and establishing friends. Our doctors can modify their strategies to meet the unique requirements of your kid.

The summer offers teen girls the ideal chance to maximize each therapy session. During the summer, they have fewer obligations and demands, so they show up to treatment sessions rested and prepared to work.

Summer’s limited obligations might be enjoyable, but they can also make you bored. Many teen girls wind up spending all day on the couch, playing computer games for hours, or even napping. Regular therapy schedules, like those of girls at Evangelhouse, can provide your daughter with a feeling of success and structure in their seemingly limitless independence.

The summer season may contribute to loneliness and isolation, much like boredom. Individual or group therapy sessions provide your daughter with opportunities for social engagement. Therapy serves as a launchpad for developing general social skills and interpersonal communication. Students may find them to be of great use in the upcoming academic year.

Our Unique LifeLeaf System

The LifeLeaf system at Evangelhouse Christian Academy gives everyday living experiences of relationships with staff, peers, and parents during our summer therapeutic camp program. Dysfunctional coping skills and misperceptions of the student are often reenacted at Evangelhouse Christian Academy, and the girls have the opportunity to work through them with the help of skilled, competent, and caring treatment staff.

Parents often prefer to find a program that can create some distance from their daughter’s current stressors. This is so she will focus on the issues at hand, and not focus on her boyfriend, friends, pets, or family while getting treatment. Also, the temptation to call a friend to “rescue” her is diminished with some distance. While we are located in Louisana, we have enrolled girls from all 50-states. 

Spiritual growth is a unique aspect of the Evangelhouse program, a viable summer therapy camp alternative. Students are urged to take notes during church sermons, establish personal bible study habits, and set aside time for prayer. 

Every school day begins with a student-led group prayer and devotional reflection for the day. Before participating in a peer-led prayer group each night before bed, the group is given time for personal contemplation. Weekly group meetings are arranged to share challenges and offer support to the peer group. Each individual is also supervised and guided by staff members as they build healthy spiritual disciplines.

Many young girls have found their place in the world and lived a life of faith thanks to the Evangelhouse experiential education and family counseling method. Our Christian life-coaching program provides adolescent girls the self-assurance they need to face challenges and succeed. We urge kids to apply biblical principles to real-life circumstances and to rely on these principles to assist them through their adolescent years and beyond.

Evangelhouse all-girls, private boarding school is a twelve-month, year-round school which means your daughter may be admitted at any point in the year. If you have any questions about the program please call us at 1-800-924-4012 or visit our contact page.

This school literally has given my daughter her life back and has given us the tools to help her and herself into the future. This is a full circle, all encompassing program. From admission to graduation. Do not delete this school from your list! I almost did because it was far away...and...to be honest, I wasn't sure how I felt about a "Christian" school. Whether you are religious or not, don't be put off or think your child is going to be brainwashed. She's not! It is a part of the day and I thought my daughter would hate it (and so did she). But it turns out she found great comfort there and her faith! I thoroughly investigated this school. In addition to my own research, I also hired a company that researches and screens these types of programs. I also had my daughter's psychiatrist interview the director! I've done all the researching and investigating for you. Whatever your daughter's issues may be, I probably have them covered! My daughter's diagnosis' range from ADHD, Anxiety, High Risk Behavior, Adoption issues/trauma and psychosis. Do not waste your time. Don't wait for Spring or end of school or whatever timeline. Act now! The happiest day of my life was delivering her to the ECA. I actually slept for the first time in years. Knowing my daughter was finally getting the help she so deserved. Therapy, school, socialization, faith, responsibility, accountability, self-worth and confidence. We all ask or pray for help. Consider ECA as prayers answered.

I graduated from ECA 4 years ago, and I can genuinely say that this place is truly amazing. It can and will help your daughter if she wants to put in the work. The staff and the girls I was with all made me feel like family and that I mattered. This place really saved my life, so if you are looking for a place that will help your daughter please send her here, I promise they will take care of her.

We had a troubled teen. I found ECA online. I made a call and set up a visit. We were looking for a place that included God and biblical principles in their program. Now that our child has finished the program, WOW! Thank you ECA leadership. Every one on staff believes in the program. It shows! and it works!!

This school has been an absolute Godsend for my daughter and our family. We realized a few months ago that she needed residential treatment. After an exhaustive search, we found the wonderful people at Evangelhouse. They do an amazing job keeping parents updated and are always available when we call. I have been impressed with the way that they are firm with the girls but also loving and caring. The process there is amazing, especially since it involves the family also. We were so happy to find a place that provides professional counseling with a Christian focus.

Two years ago we were struggling to get our daughter on the right track. We had tried everything and knew that she would need to be placed in a residential treatment facility. We had searched for at least a year to find the right place. Were looking for a Christian, all girls, small, therapeutic program not too far from Texas. Somehow, someway, God lead us to the Evangelhouse website. We are so glad that we took his direction because it has meant a world of difference for our daughter, our family, our marriage, and our peace of mind! Evangelhouse has taken a once broken, low-self esteem, miserable, self-centered, hostile, angry, self-doubting teenager in crisis and changed her into a Christ-centered, selfless, self-loving, servant-hearted, mature, sensible, responsible, thoughtful young adult. ECA implements a program that strips each student down to the bare necessities in order for them to focus on what is truly important in life. I don't know where we would be without ECA. I now know what it is like to have a functional, happy, and peaceful family life.
