Do Something Wild – inspire growth and wonder
Community, Leadership, and the Natural World
At Wilderness Adventures, we encourage our students to “Do Something Wild.” Whether getting ready to climb the next pitch, hitting the whitewater wave train, or lacing up their boots for a day of backpacking in Alaska, WA provides opportunities for students to step outside the boundaries of their comfort zone and experience the growth that comes along with challenge.
We believe that a small group experience in the wilderness serves as a valuable catalyst for our students to become more responsible, tolerant, kind, and self-confident individuals, while creating an inclusive environment. We also believe that along with these skills comes a love and appreciation for the natural world that never fades.
But to “Do Something Wild” is more than just reaching a summit or sleeping under the stars for the first time. Wilderness Adventures students are asked to challenge themselves in ways they have never before experienced. They are encouraged to take on leadership roles, unplug from their devices, and learn to appreciate the unmasked beauty of the world right before their eyes.
But we can’t forget, that Wilderness Adventures is also FUN! There will be smiles and jokes, skits and s’mores, belly laughs around the campfire, and stories that will last a lifetime.
At Wilderness Adventures, we believe in fostering an inclusive environment for all participants regardless of race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith or religion, national or ethnic origin, body type, disability (assuming the disability permits safe participation in the program) or any other category people use to define themselves. We celebrate diversity and will not tolerate harassment based on any of these characteristics.
