Your trip begins by learning the basic skills which provide a solid foundation upon which you build experience. Depending on which specific activities your trip is doing you may spend time on our climbing wall with a climbing instructor learning the fundamentals of climbing, you may then head to a flat-water kayak clinic where you will learn about white-water kayaks, river terminology & features, and paddle strokes, and from there you may meet up with a mountain bike instructor where you will learn the rules of the trail, as well as how to attach a tow-behind trailer for all of your gear.
After you and your group have acquired the necessary skills your true journey will begin. From our Base Camp you will travel by hike, canoe, bike, and sea kayak each day to a new campsite along a pre-determined route. Along your journey you will have the opportunity to experience several outdoor adventure activities such as rock climbing, caving, and white-water kayaking as you develop your outdoor leadership skills. As your trip nears its end you will make your way back to our Base Camp where you will be rewarded with a ride down one of the world's longest and fastest Zip Lines. As you ride down the zip line you will have the opportunity to reflect on your past 14 days and smile, because not everyone can say that they did what you just did!
