About Us


Our mission is to create opportunities for urban youth to experience wilderness first hand by training their adult leaders and providing equipment.


To provide comprehensive training for adults interested in taking youth into the wilderness. What’s more, we allow FREE access to our extensive Gear Library, enabling adult youth leaders to take their participants outdoors to have a safe and positive wilderness experience.

2.    Risk – foster the virtues of positive, calculated risk taking.
3.    Environmental Stewardship – honor and protect the earth.
4.    Relationships – nurture a culture of learning through relationships.
