Our mission is to engage adults and youth in physical and mental challenges to develop grit and perseverance. We want you to try stuff that is hard...and be successful.
When is the last time you did something hard -- something you wanted to do? When was the last time you did something for yourself? Are your kids easily frustrated by failure? Are they tuned in to the digital world and turned off to the wonderful possibilities and potential rewards of tackling a task that is truly challenging?
We strive to connect individuals -- both youth and adults -- to outdoor spaces. We feel that a life lived connected to the outdoors, especially the outdoor spaces found in our “extended backyard,” results in richer, more meaningful experiences and a higher quality of life. We also feel that the best way to truly love a place is to spend lots of time in it…and that which we love we’ll fight like heck to protect.
We strive to use the outdoors – along with fun outdoor activities -- as a medium with which to connect family, friends, and co-workers…friendships form, trust builds teamwork, bonds strengthen.
We strive to give individuals the opportunity to reconnect to themselves through meaningful outdoor challenges. Many of us often devote our day to meeting the needs of others, especially work and family commitments. We would love for you to spend a small part of your day meeting your needs. What is it you really want to do? How can we help you make that happen?
Are the "3 A's" working for you?
Attitude – Getting yours positive and being willing to push yourself just a little out of your comfort zone. Awareness – of your goals & dreams, of what your mind & body are capable of, of the natural world and your place in it.
Adventure – What is it you’ve always wanted to do? It’s time to do it! Remember: life should be an adventure.
