These expeditions are quickly becoming the bread and butter of our program and range in type from backpacking, survival skills, or climbing trips to canoeing/kayaking or mountain biking trips. The length, location and type of experiences integrated into the trip also vary based on the objectives and treatment goals of the individuals and group. The trips take place in many locations from the nearby national forest areas of Missouri, to as far away as Arkansas and Colorado. Participants are highly involved in the entire process of these trips from planning, goal setting and resourcing, to the actual conduct of the trip with group leadership and responsibilities on the trail. Like all of our experiences, these expeditions are designed with a therapeutic focus in mind and have proven to be highly effective periods of testing, building, confirming, waking, and changing.
