Adventurers set off this week for the 2013 Jackson Hole adventure. They were met by founders, the Cottinghams and welcomed to the program. The smiles on the student’s faces and the excitement was obvious.
The next few weeks will be packed with different skills and wilderness activities.
They start off with hiking the Teton mountains to get acclimated to the altitude and warm up to nature. Sea kayaking and viewing the beauty of Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon are next and are the times when the teens get to learn about the history of the area as well as view its splendor.
A rushing zipline adventure through the Yellowstone river area, white water rafting and a backpacking trip amp up the difficulty but also take the teens into great wilderness areas that few get to explore.
The 20 days of these activities seem like a lot, but they will go by fast. But they are sure to make a huge impression
