Adventure As A Gift

By wpdev December 20, 2009

Give the gift of experience. Every year, we see more and more parents presenting a Wilderness Ventures experience as a gift to their child. In an era when electronic distractions dominate many top teen gift guides, the Wilderness Ventures Catalog, in contrast, offers an amazing opportunity to give teens a present that will help them connect with their surroundings, their peers and themselves. Our over 17,000 alumni credit their wilderness adventure experience with us to be one of the most fun, memorable and formative experiences of their young adult lives. We believe that any adventure is as important as it is meaningful and as meaningful as it is fun. To accomplish the goals of our teen adventure camps, we ensure that everything we do creates fun, positive associations with our environments and our activities. Because our summer teen adventure trips (besides being meaningful) are so much fun, they are experiences that teens will look forward to and prepare for throughout the winder months.

These wilderness adventures are crafted for young adults who are just beginning their experiences in the outdoors or teenagers who are accustomed to outdoor life. These teen adventure camps offer unparalleled educational opportunities, and offer a creative alternative to traditional holiday gift giving as teens will walk away from these adventures with something that cannot be purchased in a store.

These teen adventure’ programs range from 14 days to 6 weeks, and the participants engage in multi-activity wilderness adventures and outdoor adventures for teens, including backpacking, whitewater rafting, whitewater kayaking, sea kayaking, rock climbing, canoeing, inflatable kayaking, mountaineering, fly fishing, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, sailing, surfing, and mountain biking. All of the wilderness adventures provide imaginative and unforgettable journeys into the backcountry in some of the most beautiful outdoor and wilderness areas of national parks and forests in North America and abroad.
