Thanks for checking out our site. Maybe someone has asked you to consider coming to one of our residential adventure programs because they think you need help dealing with drugs, getting along with others, or getting school credits.

We want to answer any questions you have about our programs because it’s important that you be involved in the decisions affecting your life. The REACH program is for youth ages 13-18 who want a program that mixes outdoor adventure with learning skills that will help you get what you want out of life with more success. Project DARE is a similar program for male youth ages 14-18 who are facing an open custody disposition.

The ACHIEVE programs are shorter term non-residential adventure and leadership development programs. Whatever program you are involved with, we guarantee that you will be treated with respect, that you will be listened to, and that we will do our best to keep you safe and help you achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Our programs are designed to be fun and challenging: you will do things few people even dream of doing. Many of our program graduates consider their time with us to be the experience that changed their lives.
