Bring home lifelong memories and experiences.

We offer a variety of trips in the southeastern part of the United States. Whether hiking the Appalachian Trail or floating down the French Broad River, participants have a blast.

Our 5- to 8-day backpacking, canoeing, climbing, and mountain biking courses throughout the Southeast are a chance for participants to have fun in a variety activities in iconic backcountry areas.

Our instructors will guide students with lessons in the wilderness skills, working together as a team, and how those values can be transferred home and into our communities.  Along the way, students will make lifelong friends, play games, and roast marshmallows around the campfire.

Beginner Friendly

Our courses are designed to be a great place to get started in the outdoors with no experience or equipment necessary. We provide instruction and all the gear.
