OUTDOOR EDUCATION AND RECREATION

to help you get outside and explore wild places

get outside and find
your clarity your connection your committment your courage yourself

Getting outside might feel like it should be as simple as walking out the front door, but the reality is it can be intimidating and overwhelming. Things like time, money, access, gear, skills, knowledge, and partners can feel like an uphill challenge.

Whether you are taking your activity to the next level or just starting to incorporate fresh air and activity into your daily routine, there can be a lot to consider.

But stretching your limits in the outdoors offers unmatchable opportunites to build your self-awareness, confidence and courage. It opens up a new world of happiness and adventure. It transforms how you look at yourself and this world. So keep calm and get outside!

GET OUTSIDE

To find your courage

Standing in front of a wild landscape, knowing your strong mind and strong body are what led you to this magical, hidden place, is inexplicably empowering and simultaneously humbling.

Not only will you have endless stories to tell, pictures to show and videos to share, but you’ll discover an untapped level of your own self-awareness, gratitude and commitment to acheiving your dreams.

OUTSIDE

GET OUTSIDE

To gain clarity inside

When you go into nature, allow yourself to break free from the stress and busyness of the day-to-day. Let your thoughts slow down. You’ll be amazed at how your mind will connect dots and see connections that weren’t there before.

Feel the rhythm of your feet hitting the ground or turning the pedals. Observe the landscape. Notice all the life in the natural world around you. Channel the power of the outdoors.

LEAVE NO TRACE

If everyone had a chance to adventure in the outdoors, this world would be a better place. But how would the planet be? If you go into nature, you must go responsibly, leaving the most minimal impact possible. And you must go safely, ensuring you are prepared for the risks ahead.

This is why all our group activites and expeditions are educational as well as recreational. We teach leave no trace principles and foundational skills so that everyone, now and in the future, can enjoy all nature has to offer.
