Unfortunately all of our wilderness outing programming is on hold during the pandemic, due to the health and safety challenges inherent in groups riding for long stretches of time together in vans. We are trying to offset this disappoinment and gap in services with individual home/farm-stays and both teletherapy and individual socially-distanced outdoor counseling sessions.
Each year we run monthly Outdoor Leadership trips and Immersion Weekends: opportunities for youth to check in with themselves and each other, learn practical skills for leadership and life, and experience the flood of positive emotions and neurotransmitters that result from moving through a challenge.
Youth are welcome to participate in one-time trips and are encouraged to engage in a progression of these trips and immersion weekends that build on each other.
