Wilderness

NEVER THE SAME

Our Education Wilderness Trips take students on the adventure of a lifetime. Anywhere from 1-5 nights in the backcountry, your students will experience nature like never before. We take them deep into some of the most beautiful and untouched wilderness Colorado has to offer.

 

Why Wilderness?

A wilderness trip is different from Adventure Camp in that we travel in smaller groups, with everything we need to survive (and thrive!), on our backs. It's a true Colorado backpacking experience!

Wilderness Roles

We can take as many as 140 students into the backcountry on multi day trips over the course of 1-2 weeks depending on the group size, permit limitations, and weather. These trips forever change young people’s view of self and their place in the world around them.

 

Leave No Trace


We believe in the importance of educating young
people to understand their role
in stewarding the
environment


In partnership with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, we implement environmental stewardship ethics and a basic understanding of ecology in order to empower young people to be change makers and key influencers in a world in desperate need of care. We emphasize the importance of assuming responsibility in both a global and local community. We challenge, empower and equip young people to make a difference in their communities through renewed vision and deeper leadership skills.
