Breakwater Expeditions announces two different teen trips this summer to Yellowstone National Park and Upper Missouri River, MT. These trips are geared towards helping teens develop “true grit” while at the same time helping them re-boot their lives and get connected to their authentic self. The focus of these trips is perseverance, inspiration, resilience, identify strengths, and develop community. This will be accomplished through small group processing, graduated challenges, goal setting and mastery of skills.
The first trip, 16 days in length, June 27 - July 12, 2018, will encompass both “boots” and “boats”. Participants will first visit Yellowstone National Park and get off the beaten path for a 4 night/5 day backpacking section. Upon completing the backpacking route, participants will then transition to the wild and scenic Upper Missouri River and canoe 100+ miles, following in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. A previous participant's mother wrote us “The experience for him was something so outside of his norm. He really needed this! I would send him again! No regrets as a parent.”
The second trip is 7 days, August 8 - 15, 2018. Participants will find themselves taking the 'road less traveled' as they navigate through a section of Yellowstone, America’s first National Park. “Breakwater Expeditions did an over-the-top job. The guides came across as genuine, knowledgeable and safety aware. They made the trip both fun and interesting. They know their stuff and clearly enjoy their work,” said a teen participant.
This trip is designed for teens who do not need a 6-8 week wilderness program but could use a shorter expedition led by experienced therapeutic wilderness guides. Our team can help facilitate an experience that will propel adolescents into a more productive and fulfilling summer, and positive start to the new school year. The ideal student for a Breakwater Expeditions teen trip could use the power of an outdoor course and would benefit from being in a smaller group with seasoned guides with therapeutic training.
