"I believe This experience put a ball in motion that will lead to a relationship breakthrough for me and my son."

Wilderness trips designed specifically for Fathers and Sons, Fathers and Daughters, and for the whole family. Engage your kiddos free from distractions. Build memories that will last a lifetime. Jump in on one of our family wilderness trips.



 

Engaged: Start to Finish

Life moves quickly. Between soccer practices and responsibilities at work it can be difficult to stay engaged. Yet, that is exactly what parents are called into, engagement. To know, love, and intentionally shape their children. Our family adventure trips give you the space you need to make up for lost time, or build on an already strong relationship. In wild places, with shared experiences, you’ll engage in ways you could never expect. And they will too.

Build a Legacy

Camping Icon

After children leave home and the thrills of their first steps into adulthood start to wane, as they settle into their own paths, they start to look back. They look back on their lives and ask the big questions of meaning, purpose, and identity. When they reflect on their childhood, and their relationship with you, there will be a handful of moments that they remember. Their sense of self-worth and vision for parenting kiddos of their own someday will forever be associated with these experiences. They are markers, and they are your legacy.
