Courses

All our programs share these important elements:

  • Courses are taught by skilled outdoor instructors who also serve as role models that our participants can identify with directly.
  • Though courses vary in terms of focus on technical skills or personal growth, we emphasize technical outdoor skills and time in the wilderness as a route towards greater self-confidence, self-efficacy, and empowerment for our participants.
  • All courses occur in an atmosphere that cultivates respect, inclusivity, and collaboration.
