Spending the summer in the wilderness helps youth build confidence, develop critical leadership skills, strengthen relationships, and grow their appreciation of the outdoors.
We don't just believe it, we have seen it.
We have seen firsthand how a summer in a program like Outdoor Adventures can not only be fun but also a transformational experience for teens during one of the most challenging times in their development. Being a part of a small community within the outdoor environment can provide a supportive, safe, and non-judgemental place where teens can challenge themselves and try new things.
OA is designed to help teens discover their individual potential, increase their confidence, develop skills to navigate group dynamics, and help them cultivate leadership skills that they will have for life.
Outdoor Adventure offers:
Of course! Your child will spend the summer kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, hiking to remote swimming holes, rafting, sliding down natural water slides, 2 overnight camping trips, biking, and SO MUCH MORE!
Wilderness camping and cooking skills, fire building skills, map and compass navigational skills, appropriate layering techniques, nutrition, hygiene, and general life skills that are critical to surviving and thriving in an outdoor environment. Special emphasis on Leave No Trace wilderness ethics.
Challenge course elements (high and low elements), group initiatives, and team-building activities that cultivate skills in conflict resolution, small group problem solving and communication. Activities focus around 3 tiers of leadership: self, peer and community.
