Unlike other programs, Trails Momentum strongly believes in developing both soft and hard skills. Students are taught from the “ground up” the fundamental skill set for each adventure activity, increasing their efficacy in the outdoors and allowing them to continue to engage in healthy outdoor pursuits after they transition from the program.
Outdoor adventures offer the opportunity to help young adults get away from the screen and discover themselves in a way that they simply can’t at home.
Students don’t have to be expert outdoorsmen to experience the best that Momentum can offer. Instead, we have activities that they can engage in no matter their skills or physical abilities. Whether on the mountain, a river, or on a trail our students will discover that they are capable, strong, and can overcome any challenge.
“I’m good enough.”
“I can do anything I put my mind to.”
These are some of the thoughts our students have as they gain in confidence and start on a new path.
Trails Momentum’s adventure based wilderness therapy approach helps strip away the aspects of daily life that are not providing direction and fulfillment and helps students reflect on who they want to be and identify the steps to get there.
Trails Momentum is a chance to focus within.
Whether at Sky Valley base camp or the field students have time to focus and reconnect with themselves and others.
