Peter Frankel, BA

Alumni Communications Coordinator

Peter Frankel has a BA in English with a concentration in Writing from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. He came to Open Sky after sending his daughter through the program in 2013.

Peter’s work experience with YMCA resident camps around the country lends itself to the world of wilderness therapy. Peter is a firm believer in Open Sky’s model and is eager to help enrich the experience for families. He is part of the movement that hopes to make wilderness programming more accessible and available to everyone.

With six children, Peter and his wife Marya maintain a dynamic and sometimes pleasantly chaotic household in Evanston, Illinois. Cherished time in Durango is spent deepening bonds with Open Sky’s extraordinary staff and becoming more familiar with the rich and diverse landscape of the Four Corners.

If you happen to catch Peter in Durango, you have an open invitation for a meal and fellowship on his porch.

About Open Sky

Since 2006, Open Sky Wilderness Therapy has been providing the premier family-centered wilderness therapy experience. The Open Sky approach transcends traditional wilderness therapy by emphasizing treatment for the whole family not just the adolescent or young adult, and the application of evidence-based clinical modalities with innovative, well-researched holistic healing practices such as yoga, meditation and mindfulness.
