Wilderness Ventures

We are proud to be the oldest and most experienced outdoor adventure travel program for young adults. Since 1973, we have set the standards in this field for safe programs of the highest caliber. Each summer we offer a wide variety of carefully designed, challenging, safe and supportive adventures for young people between 13 and 20 years of age.

Our adventures are not tours, but rather combinations of carefully planned activities in a wide range of wilderness and outdoor environments that are located in specific geographical regions. We spend the entire summer living in the outdoors. Between our activity destinations, we travel short distances in new, uncrowded passenger vans. Our routes and campsites find us traveling through places of historic, cultural, or scenic interest, providing us with a clear sense of place and an appreciation of each region's unique characteristics.

On programs ranging from 14 days to 6 weeks, our participants engage in multi-activity wilderness and outdoor adventures, 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 our 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, or along bicycle routes around these stunning environments.
