More Than a River Trip

Young adults today seek challenges to test their physical and mental abilities. High Adventure activities entice youth to train and work to achieve physical and mental goals through outdoor experiences. A High Adventure is more than just a scenic outdoor experience or physical challenge. It is living and cooperating with others to meet and exceed exciting challenges. It is learning to overcome difficulties and striving to live in harmony with nature.

•••

In successfully exceeding these challenges, young people gain confidence, humility, and self-reliance. Our youth become self-reliant by learning a variety of novel and more complex topics and skills. High Adventure develops critical thinking, judgment and decision-making skills. High Adventure stimulates good citizenship through teamwork and opportunities for leadership. It emphasizes spirituality by bringing young people closer to nature. It connects individuals to the land, developing a bond of respect for wild places and wild things.

•••

Through high adventure, a person becomes committed to wild land stewardship. High Adventure inspires young people to undertake worthy challenges and to work together to meet common team objectives. It offers meaningful and lasting experiences in their lives.
