Adventures

A wilderness expedition involves a new experience and new challenge, all within a new and different setting. And what a setting! Challenge and cooperative companionship – it’s a rich combination that brings out a unique and remarkable energy. It’s a mingling of helping hands, campfires, thunderstorms, good food, triumphs, struggles, sore muscles, late-night conversations and laughter. To be a part of such a rich experience is a reward that is unmatched in my other endeavours.” Beth D., Toronto, ON
