Why the Wilderness Context?


We believe the wilderness has a lot to teach us as we move towards a more just world. Group experiences in the wilderness help to deepen social ties and model the principles of community. Additionally, when we face challenges in the wilderness (like heavy packs or a strong headwind), we learn to give up control and be present in the moment. The sustenance we receive from the wilderness provides renewal and contributes to resiliancy.

There is abundant scientific evidence showing the benefits of wilderness for individual well-being.
