“Our son Jay had the experience of a lifetime—his only regret was that he couldn't stay longer. The guides (George and Jimmy) were fantastic, providing him with opportunities for personal, emotional, and physical growth. He enjoyed being placed in leadership positions where he felt both challenged and respected. Thank you! Both of our boys will be back again.”

"My son and nephew went on a 3 day trip this summer. The counselors were helpful during preparations and the gear we rented was in good condition. The boys came home tired and dirty with huge smiles on their faces. A great experience!"

"George is one of those rare educators who can develop an instant rapport with children. He is professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic and my kids eagerly anticipate each and every new learning adventure with him!"

"I learned so much from him on those backpacks, both hard and fast skills as well as knowledge and appreciation for our national parks and their natural beauty. You definitely don't want to pass up the opportunity to go backpacking with Andrew."
