Discover the Adventure Links Difference

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER

There is a magic, an exhilaration, and a potent significance that comes from knowing you've made an impact in someone's life. In 1997, my husband Austin and I founded Adventure Links with a resolute passion that profound experiences can uncover courage, build community, and inspire connection. The dream was built alongside the depth of patience we were granted from our two daughters (with TWO entrepreneurs as parents)! They now relish in their Adventure Links' experiences and know, firsthand, the significance of building this community and family. We proudly embark on our 20th year of Adventure Links and thank our community of dedicated followers and impassioned staff who possess an artful ability to reach the hearts and adventurous spirits of thousands to truly make a difference. This is our life's purpose and we are privileged to have found it!

Outdoor Education

As a company, Adventure Links has a deep understanding of the positive social, emotional and mental outcomes of time spent in the outdoors. The pivotal effects of experiential education, outdoor challenges and group team building provide the backdrop for individual and team development. Through our experiential programs, we design incrementally more challenging itineraries that keep participants returning for more extensive leadership experiences. The changes and success stories born from outdoor education are as inspiring as the mountains and rivers we visit.

Our Core Model

Adventure Links' programs strive to challenge the individual, develop teamwork and empower the participant to protect the environment. We aim to create positive learning cultures and challenge ourselves to be on the forefront of outdoor educational practices. Our staff is motivated to educate youth in the outdoors. They endeavor to create experiences that provide the back-drop for individual and team development through the use of high adventure, environmental, and team building activities during our group programs and summer camps.

Intended Outcomes for Programs & Camps

Individual

Each participant in the program will learn more about their own physical and social abilities and responsibilities by providing opportunities to try new things and push themselves outside of their comfort-zone. Participants will be able to identify where they excel and what they may need to work on to become a better person in their community. The individual’s learning will be specific and long lasting.

Group

Participants will learn how to create an environment where a group of people are able to create bonds, identify specific roles and establish a system for how to solve challenges. Individuals will learn about a variety of models and strategies on how to work with their peers. The group will develop problem solving skills so that the team as a whole is able to work through real world situations and have success. 

Environment

Participants will gain a stronger sense of responsibility to be a care taker for the natural world. They will leave with a better sense of wonder about the complexity and beauty of the natural world and an understanding of a variety of ecological principles and systems. Participants will also learn more about their impact on our ecosystem and steps that they can take to protect important natural resources.
