Outdoor Adventure Education for Youth

Challenge Program


The Challenge experience will be 9 months of the most enjoyable adventures of your life. It is making friends, working together, climbing mountains, paddling rivers, telling stories, watching sunsets and learning as much about yourself as you learn about the world. You will challenge your body and your mind and come out of the experience a much better you!

The Challenge Program runs throughout the school year with weekly after-school meetings for instruction, planning and fun activities.  Weekend outings will take place on  mostly-monthly basis and may be scheduled to take advantage of school breaks and holidays. 

Challenge is coming to Prescott High School in Fall 2019.  If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive updates on the Program start-up including how to become a member, just fill out the form on our Contact page.





Challenge is: 

"... reaching your goal no matter how impossible it may seem."

"... speaking the truth and learning to see the truth in others."

"... hitting the rapids and at the end, finding you're the only one left in the boat."

"... sharing your food, no matter how little you have."

"... making new friends and having them turn into old friends."

"... an opportunity to discover."

"... living, learning, loving and growing together as one, big, happy family."

"... wishing you were in a nice hot shower, then standing in that nice hot shower and wishing you were still out hiking."

"... a group of people who can accept challenges of both the body and the mind, coming out of the experience a better, more complete person."
