  • Provide enjoyable adventure experiences that embrace experiential learning.
  • Create an atmosphere where group experiences foster a sense of team.
  • Provide instructional foundations in a wide range of adventure activities.
  • Focus on safety issues and manage risks in the most proactive manner.
  • Provide an opportunity for environmental appreciation and stewardship.
