Adolescents aged 16 – 17 choose their own journeys towards adulthood with two distinct programs that provide opportunities for growth and self-discovery. In the Hero’s Journey® program, participants spend a week in the woods of Connecticut learning self-reliance, positive communication and teamwork through a variety of exciting challenges and wilderness first aid training. With a homebase in the Young Adult Lodge, Champion’s Journey helps participants gain similar skills using the Camp environment. Participants from both programs will come together following the summer for a nine-month virtual program – Journey On – which will build upon their experiences from their in-person programming and solidify skills that will prepare them to embrace the full promise of their futures.
I’ve learned so much about life and myself that I didn’t know I had to share with the world. I do believe I have been changed for the better.
