My son is absolutely so thrilled with the experience, feels he's made wonderful new friends, and couldn't say enough wonderful things about how much he loved the leaders and what special people they were. He can't wait for next year and is trying to find an equally adventurous trip. Thank you for everything you all did to make this such a pleasant experience for us as parents too!

Both my son and daughter had a trip of a lifetime and my daughter still talks about it years later as I know my son is already starting to do. They both formed strong bonds with the people they were with and still chat with them. They learned so much about things beyond our U.S. borders. This awesome experience will be with them the rest of their lives.

Hannah had a fantastic time and she absolutely loved her counselors, Augusta and Chris. She had many great stories to tell and really enjoyed interacting with them. They were very protective of the kids and took special care of them. I really appreciate all that they did for Hannah! Now she wants to be a Marine Biologist!

I love that my daughter really got to experience the outdoors without technology. Keep it that way! I also loved that my daughter did this without knowing anyone - that made the success of her trip all the more impressive to me.

My son came back a more self-confident and independent young man. He had the time of his life...enjoyed the trip and activities, got along with everyone, and wished his trip was longer!

The thought of it was a little intimidating to him, but after he finished he couldn't wait to show us the climbing he did. In fact, he wants to do a climbing oriented trip next time!

I think this experience was quite beneficial for Kevin in many ways. He had opportunities to grow and act as a leader; his self esteem was given a boost; he learned to work in a cooperative manner and developed what will hopefully be lasting relationships with his fellow campers; his love of the wilderness, climbing, backpacking etc. were enhanced; he brought back wonderful memories and photos. Thank you!

I just want to thank you for providing Jack with a memorable experience. He thought 16 days would be too long but turns out he wished it would have been a longer trip. He absolutely loves fishing and wants to go on another fishing adventure in another location.

I stumbled upon Wilderness Ventures as I looked for a job as an instructor at an adventure camp. I can safely say I am lucky to have somehow come across such an amazing organization. This summer marks my second year working with Wilderness Ventures and I couldn't be happier to be returning to work for such a well-intentioned company. As an instructor last year, I saw the impact a summer with Wilderness Ventures has on the kids. After just two weeks, you could feel the camaraderie and see how empowered each and every one of them felt. Kids would come on the trip having never camped and would leave with a profound love of the natural world and the environment. Not to mention, they didn't want the trip to ever end. Ultimately, Wilderness Ventures does what few organizations can do: it provides kids with a fun, exciting way to build on leadership skills they may have otherwise never developed.

WV is a very professionally run organization that provides detailed, thorough communication at every step of the process, and every aspect of the trip is of outstanding quality.

I have worked with Wilderness Ventures for two years now. I led the New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji and the Hawaii trips. And i am returning to lead the Thailand service trip. Wilderness Ventures is the best company i have worked for. The owners and staff are wonderful, down to earth people who take their time to get to know every trip leader personally. Wilderness Ventures trips are carefully planned to offer a remarkable adventure for everyone involved. And as a leader the kids that go on these trips inspire us to return and lead another great adventure.

I am returning to lead for Wilderness Ventures for a second year because of the incredible summer I had as a leader in 2012. Without exception, every student had a blast on all three trips that I was a part of. Visiting hot springs, hiking into canyons, whitewater rafting, working on a farm, and meaningful volunteer work were all part of our regular routine. These activities were excellently planned and facilitated by the administration, and so my job as a leader was made easy.Wilderness Ventures has had such a long rich history of making positive impacts while introducing participants to new life skills and the great outdoors, and so it feels great to become a piece of this tradition.

Both girls enjoyed the opportunity of making new friends, building self confidence by trying things they'd never done, learning new responsibilities such as shopping for and preparing their meals, and working on their learning and listening skills.

This will be my second year leading for Wilderness Ventures. WV offers its participants an unforgettable and enriching experience in some of the most beautiful places in the world. The trips allow participants the chance to develop their leadership skills, expand their horizons, and make life-long friends. The leaders are all dedicated and enthusiastic. The office staff puts together amazing itineraries and takes every detail into consideration to ensure the highest quality trips.

I am so excited to be returning for a third summer as a trip leader for Wilderness Ventures. Every person I have worked with at WV is kind, caring, fun and responsible. We all understand how lucky we are to lead young people, and are united in wanting to help provide them a great WV experience! WV has opportunities for trips in the most beautiful and remote places in the world. As a past camper and leader, I have traveled to amazing locations in both the United States (Yellowstone and Alaska), as well as internationally (Costa Rica...twice!). WV's focus with their campers is to help them develop not only self confidence, self reliance, and leadership skills, but also the ability to work well with groups and build relationships with their peers. Working with high school and middle school aged students is an extremely rewarding experience, and an opportunity afforded by WV.

She wanted to do a three-week-long camp to see what it would be like to be "on her own" without family. She did great! She made friends, overcame physical challenges and came back stronger, happier and more confident in every way. The counselors on her trip were very responsive and took great care of her from the first to the last minute of the trip.

This experience for Claire was life-altering. She gained perspective about herself that would have taken years to gain otherwise. From the moment we connected with Wilderness Ventures until the time we picked up Claire from the airport we were pleased and impressed with every aspect of Wilderness Ventures.

You know it is going well when the first two lines of the post card read, "I'm having the time of my life here. It is so beautiful and I've never seen anything like it before. Thanks so much for this! Love you guys!

Wilderness Ventures offers some incredible adventures throughout the world to some of the most unique places that only a limited number of people will ever get to see and enjoy. As a trip leader, I have had the privilege of leading student participants throughout the regions of the Grand Tetons & Yellowstone, the Big Island of Hawaii, and internationally in Australia. I have so many positive memories and stories from my experiences, and many of the participants on these trips have continued to build on their relationships that first formed throughout these summer excursions. Throughout the year, the Wilderness Ventures administration and staff put in countless hours researching and planning each trip with such incredible detail. Their hard work and effort truly pays off for the students in the summer as trips typically run very smoothly and emphasis can be placed on the students and their experiences, instead of worrying about the logistics. When instances do occur (like change in flights or late arrivals, etc) the Wilderness Ventures staff does a great job of adjusting plans as needed and communicating with trip leaders and parents. I have enjoyed working with the administration, other trip leaders, and the participants and am looking forward to returning as a trip leader again this summer!

Wilderness Ventures is a great company! It is all about helping students grow to be more confident people and know that they can take on a challenge. I chose to come back this summer because I love working for Wilderness Ventures! I love the community and the people and the students! Each trip is full of so many fun and meaningful memories. In a WV trip there is so much growth in each of the students and I love being a part of that. Every student that comes on trip grows in some way either becoming a better climber and hiker, or learning how to interact with peers and create meaningful relationships, how to cook outside, and how to be confident in themselves and stand up for themselves. Plus backpacking, camping, and spending every minute outside is a great way to spend the summer!

I have been a leader for Wilderness Ventures for two summers now, leading trips in Fiji and in the Swiss Alps. As a leader, you get to see the amount of effort and planning the office staff put into each and every detail of the trips to provide the opportunities for growth to the students in the programs. As a trip leader, especially leading in foreign countries, I know that circumstances, from late plane arrivals and miscommunications in foreign languages, to adverse weather and a sick student, always require being able to adjust and adapt the trip. WV office staff was always available to help change reservations, alter transportation and trail plans, and troubleshoot problems, allowing the leaders like me to focus on the more important task of optimizing our students experiences. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with 45 amazing students while leading four different WV trips and because of the amazing opportunities WV offers to its students, I am returning for a third summer this year.

I must say, I assumed my son would have lots of fun on this trip, but I had no idea he would have had this much fun. All he's talked about for the last two weeks was this trip! All the people he met, all the different adventures he experienced, all the time spent outdoors, I could go on and on. Everyone was wonderful and treated him better than I expected. Your people did a remarkable job at fostering an atmosphere that was conducive for learning AND having an unforgettable experience. I can definitely see him doing this again in the future.
