We embrace children and families of all faiths and traditions. As part of Intermountain Residential’s integrated services, the Chaplain’s Program is an optional program designed to support the spiritual and cultural development of your child. Our Chaplain will work closely with you to understand the spiritual and cultural values of your family and honor your family’s faith and cultural traditions by designing an individualized plan for your child.
Our Jewish Mentors are entrusted to work with Jewish students to help them grow in their understanding of Jewish thought and practice. Non-Jewish students also benefit from learning and participating in Jewish traditions and celebrations in combined sessions and in cottage life.
Every week, the Chaplain provides a scheduled time for your child to participate in music, movement, drama, crafts, games, activities, and lessons that address various learning styles and engage students in learning and self-discovery. Individual mentoring is provided upon request.
Other aspects of the Chaplain’s Department programming include a sports camp, service projects, tea parties, field trips, community orchestra and cultural engagements exploring a variety of traditions and expressions, food, language, and song. All activities are planned within the treatment philosophy of Intermountain.
