From a 5-day San Juan trip to a 1-day Verde trip, children learn how to navigate rivers with a crew of supportive wilderness guides, case managers and clinical specialists while forging new relationships with others and nature.
Camping offers rewarding exposure to nature that can be less intense than a full river trip. Children and adolescents often report back that they’ve learned new skills, formed new friendships with other participants, and feel more relaxed after a weekend in nature.
Children need a healthy escape from reality, too! Children who participate on one-day hikes learn more about nature in their own backyard. Sometimes, this may be a child’s first experience hiking outdoors. With hundreds of exciting places to hike, there is no shortage of adventure!
