Why We Help - Our Campus

Our Campus

Ryther’s tree-shaded, 10-acre campus was purchased by the Ryther League in 1954 Ryther Campus and has since provided a nurturing and therapeutic environment for the children and teens who receive treatment here, as well as the hundreds of families who visit our outpatient offices and programs. Ryther’s administrative and outpatient services buildings as well as the three children’s cottages were recently renovated in 2016.

The cottages now offer a home-like setting where children have Ryther Campus their own rooms and share family-style meals with staff and peers. Also with a K-8 school and covered play area arranged around a large green grassy field, our campus is uniquely suited for experiential activities and sports, such as soccer. We also have a climbing wall, areas for playing basketball with peers or a therapist, a nature trail for hiking and three cottage gardens for growing vegetables and berries. Ryther Campus

Ryther is fortunate to have a certified Challenge Course for clients as well as for corporate team building. Visiting families can stay overnight in our Family Center to get lots of time shadowing staff in the cottages or participating in family therapy. Our Garvey Center for Healing provides a space where children can do yoga, drumming, art and movement, plus other therapies.

Our outpatient building and west unit were recently renovated, and we now have parking lot lighting. We are nearly finished and you can still get involved.
