Base Camp Parent
"Wow! Finally a day camp with heart!! My kids ages, 10 and 11 had a ball. The counselors were beyond fun and kids loved ALL the choices for outdoor activities without all the waiting. Feels good to send the boys to a camp that is a GRAND leap beyond the usual day camp experience."
Yellowstone Teton Discovery Student
"The things I did and saw this summer were so unique and incredible just like the people I met. I learned that determination is the key to success."
Hawaii Explorer Student
"There's just a special thing about these trips that bonds everyone together and a great way to see the world."
Grand Teton Student
"Wilderness Adventures is so different from anything else and it is an experience of a lifetime. I think that everyone should try something like this once in their life because it's such a special experience."
Gap Semester Student
"The most valuable learning experiences on my trip were during WFR training, meal planning, cooking, navigating trails, and adapting to changes in the itinerary. I learned how to remain calm and effectively treat patients, create meals and grocery lists, delegate tasks while cooking, read topographic maps and identify trails, and lastly how to revise a plan and implement it successfully when the original plan is faulty or unexpectedly changed."
