Wilderness Youth Quest

Inyo Mountains, CA
Sliding fee of $1097-1797

The wilderness solo experience is an age-old rite of passage. You will join the ranks of countless others who have gone before you as you step into yourself as an adult in the mirror of the natural world and human community. In these times of unprecedented environmental and social transformation, when we unplug and take time to reflect and slow down enough to find our natural rhythm, new and lasting possibilities for our lives emerge. Join with other young adults in this coming of age opportunity to gain a renewed sense of who you are and your place in this world.


For Families: As our young ones come of age, they are taking their lives more fully into their own hands. This is a time of transformation both for the young ones and for the whole family. The Youth Quest is for teens who want to know themselves and their path more clearly, who want to mark the changes in their lives, who are ready to step into their power and responsibility as young adults. It is for families who want to work together to support each other during this mutual transition.  All members of the family are encouraged to participate in pre- and post-trip activities to witness and support this rite of passage for their loved one. See web for details.
