Collaboration, curiosity and compassion are encouraged in every aspect of our programs as we explore, create and engage in nature.

WILDERNESS & WATER SAFETY

Our instructors are required to have Wilderness First Aid & CPR certification, and are trained to manage risk in a backcountry setting. Many of our programs include kayaking and/or paddle boarding. We train our staff in ACA water rescues and risk management. All participants, regardless of swimming ability, wear a PFD at all times on the water.

TOILETING

We have the use of portable toilets at many of our program locations, however as we are an entirely outdoor program we use 'wild bathrooming' practices . Our wild bathrooming includes a private place to go to the bathroom in the woods or on a portable 'potty' for our younger participants followed by hand washing/sanitizing. Many of our participants like to carry a small toileting bag in their pack with toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
