Each week will be a combination of day and overnight experiences

The goal of the program is to offer teens experiences with life-long impacts on stewardship, self-confidence, resilience, decision-making, social interaction, and more. The first day of each program includes orientation and checking equipment for daytime and overnight adventures. Days 2-5 include adventures to some of the most scenic spots in Southern Illinois and elsewhere.
