Nature and the outdoors have so much to offer people of every age. However, young adults have the potential to gain even more. Not only can nature and the outdoors help them to develop an understanding of the importance of what Mother Nature has to offer, but it can also help to encourage the development of life skills that are necessary in order to be a happy and successful person.
Here are other ways a Wilderness Adventure can help prepare your teen for their future:
The development of meaningful relationships. Not only do we think that your teen will find a passion for one of our many outdoor activities, but they will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet other peers their age, all with similar interests. With all of our Wilderness Adventures trips, your teen will learn to work with their peers as a group, building not only relationships, but developing self-confidence, independence, and a sense of responsibility in their own life.
Learn how to enjoy life. With all the stress that comes with school, work, and life in general, it is important for children, particularly young adults, to learn how to de-stress and learn to enjoy life. The outdoors is a good way to get away from the stressors in life and learn to find happiness in a healthy way.
Experience places like no other. A Wilderness Adventure adventure offers once-in-a-lifetime trips to places many people will never have the opportunity to visit. Whether your teen wants to backpack the Teton Wilderness, kayak Monterey Bay, or zip-line the Yellowstone River, there is an ultimate experience waiting for them.
How to care and cook for yourself. On a Wilderness Adventure, your teen will learn the important life skills to properly care for themselves, including preparing their own meals, as well as meals for their peers.
