PEER LEADERSHIP EXPEDITIONS


6-12th grade, college, young adults
4-7 days, or more
Location varies by course

I learned that many of my fears, limitations and dislikes are all mental. Any time I believed I would not be able to push harder to complete a goal, it was my mind that held me back, and eventually pushed me even farther as I learned.
-José, 10th grade student

What can your students learn from carrying a heavy backpack on the Superior Hiking Trail, portaging through the Boundary Waters, trying to locate a campsite at night or building a shelter in the rain? They discover that there is more in them than they ever thought possible — they build strength, confidence, and hope. This is no ordinary camping trip; it’s a journey with purpose! We create experiences that extend far beyond the course and leverage the power of symbolic “mountain top” moments.

CHARACTER EDUCATION


It’s not just about the thrills. More than ever before, we must find innovative ways to educate our youth and instill a sense of purpose, confidence, compassion and a desire to make a positive difference in the world. See an Expedition in action:
