we believe in the simple yet profound power of wilderness to transform lives. Through outdoor adventure, we empower youth and young adults build stronger relationships to nature, to their communities, and most importantly–to themselves.
Phones, screens and social media have become increasingly embedded in our day-to-day lives. These technologies captivate our attention and can feel all consuming. Summit Journeys take a positive psychology approach to dealing with these pressures- providing facilitated wilderness experiences for youth to feel a deeper sense of connection beyond screens. Our programs create opportunities for healthier habits to be formed with technology, not by eliminating it from our lives, but by rekindling in-person relationships with friends, family, and the outdoors. Through outdoor adventures, hands-on skill development, and play, participants will leave our programs more confident, connected, and empowered to be the architect of their own lives.
