"This program was one of the most inspiring experiences I have had to date. It has actually propelled me to want to further pursue wilderness education to deepen that connection within myself and share with others." E.S., Wilderness Skills Alumnus
"There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but nature more." Lord Byron
"You all do an amazing job inspiring kids to be actively engaged in their environment. Every week, Isaac is eager to demonstrate his newly developed skills and knowledge, including catching crayfish for dinner, collecting plants for tea or medicinal uses, and carving wood into bows. He is proud to be able to teach his parents a thing or two!" Summer Camp Parent
