"My daughter went on a trip with Wilderness Adventures to the Pacific Northwest in the summer of 2019 and I can't say enough good things about her trip and her experience. The trip leaders were excellent and the owner of the company even joined them for a few days. Very professional, safe and fun!"

"We sent our 11 year old son on California Discovery last summer. It was an incredible two weeks. He loved every section of the trip, with the highlight being rafting the American River. The trip leaders were knowledgeable, fun and guided the kids through new outdoor & leadership skills. We heard stories everyday for months. Our son cannot wait to head to the Pacific Northwest this summer with Wilderness Adventures. He is hooked!"

Our History

Adventure Awaits.

"I was a little apprehensive about sending my son to camp. He is my youngest, and for better or worse, he simply had not been away from me very much. I had heard great things about Wilderness Adventures, but it was still a leap of faith. Well, there was not even the slightest need for concern. My son had the time of his life. Yes, the itinerary is super impressive, and the locations are beautiful, the activities are so fun, and the trip leaders are cool, but there is something even bigger that happens. Wilderness Adventures has something very special that it infuses into their trips. The camaraderie, cohesion, and cooperation, friendship, leadership opportunities, and personal boundary-expanding experiences, during their two weeks together, created something incredibly special for my son. The WA trip gave him his own, independent, opportunity to grow and mature apart from our family, in the best possible way."

Your trail awaits

I mostly learned how to push myself and I realized what I am capable of. The times I accomplished my goals really helped to boost my confidence.

Alexa Beychok, Atlanta, GA

During my WA trip I learned that I am a lot stronger physically and mentally than I ever thought I could be. I conquered things that nobody back home would ever dream of doing.

Kelsey Klopfer, Galena, CA

Georgia had an amazing summer – life changing, challenging, fun, adventurous, educational, built physical and emotional confidence in new arenas.

Parents of Georgia Grey, Denver, CO

I learned a lot of outdoor skills. I also learned to live and work in a group, but all while being responsible for myself. I learned to trust myself, my instincts, and nature.

Maggie Niehaus, Atlanta, GA

Even though I learned so much about the people around me, I learned a lot about myself, who I am, and who I wish to become.

Emily Landes, Centennial, CO

More than the miles covered, it was the people I was with that taught me the most and made my summer the wonderful journey that it was.

Andrew Chambers, Atlanta, GA

Wilderness Adventures gave me a whole new perspective on the outdoors as a place to challenge myself, experience natural beauty, and reflect on life.
