Join Our Great Mentors and Fellow Students on 
an Epic Wilderness Experience
Nature is an indispensable teacher for youth. Elevation Outdoor Course takes us out of our day-to-day activities and places us in direct contact with mentors, peers, and the natural environment, causing us to engage in introspection and ponder the meaning of life. We often come away from activities in nature with a deepened sense of our own existence and a more profound respect for life.
Elevation created a fun and unique atmosphere that encouraged my fellow peers, and I, to open up and be ourselves without the stress or worry of being judged by others.” -- Student
Nature also has a perfect accountability system. It does not bend to our whims. It will produce abundantly if nurtured, but it refuses to be coerced.

Nature teaches us the importance of physical and mental preparation, and it helps us develop the ability to rapidly adapt to changes. In natural environments the consequences of one’s choices are immediate. 

Multi-day backpacking treks, rock climbs, canyoneering expeditions, and rappels have a way of bringing out students’ natural leadership abilities. They learn to be responsible for the food, water, physical safety, and emotional health of themselves and others. They get used to high-risk situations and learn to perform under pressure. Their endurance, physical and mental strength, balance and agility are tested and enhanced. 

They also gain insight into their lives and relationships during guided solo time in nature, away from other students and far away from iPods, make-up, video games and cell phones.

Elevation is my home. When I'm at Elevation, I can feel the culture of belonging. It's so real. Everyone there is so supportive, and every conversation I have is meaningful. My favorite thing about Elevation is how accepting everyone is and the connections that I've made." -- Student
