The Cascades field area is located in central Oregon in the high desert on the eastern edge of the Cascade Range along the Deschutes River. Here, the Ponderosa pine forest transitions into the high desert, characterized by arid land, juniper, sagebrush, and bitterbrush.
Wildlife is abundant, including antelope, elk, porcupine, badger, Golden Eagles, and Bald Eagles, just to name a few. Elevation ranges from 4,000 to 5,000 feet. The wilderness field area is semi-arid with over 300 days of sunshine annually, with mild summers and moderate winters.
Cascades Adventure Activities
Evoke at Cascades also incorporates adventure activities in one of its adolescent groups. With many years of Wilderness Therapy experience, Psychologist Dr. J Huffine utilizes adventure activities in his group to provide opportunities for motivation and engagement.
In addition to adventure activities, Dr. Huffine’s group continues to primarily utilize evidence-based methods of experiential therapy found in the nomadic therapeutic model. This model provides day-to-day, moment-to-moment learning experiences, utilizing Evoke’s research-proven approach. Our method of Wilderness Therapy facilitates the development of resilience, insight, personal accountability, coping, and social skills, providing a therapeutic impact that only a nomadic model can provide.
