Intro to Adventure

Are you ready to rise to the challenge?

The 10-Day Intro to Adventure Course is an unforgettable experience that will take you outside your comfort zone and into the Alaskan wilderness. If you’re looking for more than the typical summer camp, this course is for you.

Beyond the challenges, you will interact with Alaska’s authentic and raw environment that will truly test your limits and help you grow.
