For the past 40 years Wilderness Ventures has dedicated itself to helping teens become responsible adults through challenging and meaningful teen outdoor adventures.
Today’s young people are inundated with video games, instant messaging, cell phones and computers. It is oftentimes difficult to convince them that escaping these comforts of home will open up to them a new world, far more fun than the one left behind. Our students experience beauty beyond description, and become valuable contributors to our small groups. They establish lifelong friendships and many discover who they really are for the first time in their lives.
Active teen adventures and summer camp activities help today’s “wired generation” reconnect with the out-of-doors in ways that help them become responsible, self-confident and self-reliant, and they are continuously amazed at how much fun they can have without cell phones, computers and iPods.
