Our Courses

All of our courses are intended to inspire the joy of adventure while learning the basic skills necessary to go adventure anywhere in the world. Our students experience rich personal development of determination, teamwork, wilderness appreciation, resilience, independence and a sense of self.

Our goal is to equip a generation of teens to be self confident, independent contributors to whatever teams, families, and communities they are a part of for the rest of their life.

We design our courses for two stages of the teen years: Younger teens aged, 13 to 15, and older teens, aged 16 to 18. All of our courses are designed to be different than the usual Alaska summer camp.

Courses for Summer 2024 available now!

We started these programs to reach all teens with an interest – we don’t want cost to be a barrier to entry.  Thanks to a 2024 grant from MICA Guides we have the funds for 50 students to get a $250 scholarship to join one of our courses.
