Wilderness Road by Campbell Loughmiller is the story of a camp probably unlike any you have known.
In the woods of East Texas groups of ten boys and their counselors live close to the land...building their own shelters, providing their own food and recreation, and sharing the experiences of creative group living.
Camp Woodland Springs, sponsored by the Salesmanship Club of Dallas, has operated on a continuous year-round basis in the treatment of emotionally handicapped boys. In an atmosphere of novelty, intensity and adventure, hundreds of youngsters have been given the opportunity to develop a sense of relationship and individual worth.
Shaping and directing the program, Campbell Loughmiller has skillfully combined education and therapy. Always striving to offer on-the-spot help in concrete situations, he states, "We don't spend a lot of time helping a boy see what made him behave as he did in a particular situation. Our emphasis is upon helping him see how he can improve next time."
