Bond with Siblings on Trips from Wilderness Ventures

IMG_1766

Trips with brothers and sisters can seem like a huge drag. A poke from the back seat to the back of the head or an annoying sing-a-long are probably a few of the peeves that brothers and sisters have when they imagine long rides  or plane rides while on vacation.

Wilderness Ventures says au contraire on the thought that siblings will ruin a stellar vacation. Going out into nature with a familiar friend at your side is actually a benefit, not an annoyance.

Who wouldn’t want someone to share the memory of diving in Fiji, hiking to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, or lazing it over in Jackson Hole with a fishing line in the water? Brothers and sisters forget all that bickering once they get a look at the sunrise or once one lifts the other over a tough hill. Plus, it lets parents get a little bit of peace and quiet knowing that their children are bonding and getting some quality experiences.

Or if they really don’t want to be together or one is a little too young, brothers and sisters can still take separate trips and use those experiences to get along better or maybe plan a trip together some other time.

Plus, if siblings sign up for a Wilderness Ventures, one of them gets a special discount 10 percent discount.

Summer 2013 Students Relax for Labor Day Weekend

The teens are back at home after months of intense fun and self-improvement. So it may seem like a bit of a lull this weekend knowing that there are no 6 am trips to go kayaking or to summit a mountain.

It was a great few months with everyone but it is pretty nice to just be at home and reflect on the great Wilderness Ventures memories. That doesn’t mean there is nothing to do to bring some adventure into the weekend.

But there is no need to worry. There are plenty of Labor Day activities that Wilderness Ventures teens and their families can do. For example, do a 5k or 10k race, go for a family walk or just sit on the porch and enjoy the beautiful outside while they enjoy the vacation.
