  1. Riding ADDventures for Teen Girls in Montana is another amazing camp for teenage girls with ADHD!! They do classic summer camp activities; camp fires, s’mores, trail rides, arts and crafts along with therapeutic activities for ADHD like mindfulness rides, journaling, self-compassion learning. It is truly outstanding experience, a must-do camp that I highly recommend for any teen girl with ADD/ADHD. The website is: https://horsesncourage.com/riding-addventures-for-teen-girls/

  2. Is there a section on the West missing as not many there – apart from Soar under the multiple locations heading. There are others in northern California that I have heard of such as Quest Therapeutic Camps and Camp Altitude at Via West .
