Essential Eligibility Criteria

“The people I met were amazing and made the trip. Besides that, the Absarokas are so filled with wildlife and alpine meadows, great new challenges for me. I felt like I did something I didn't think I would ever do every day of this course. I gained a lot of self confidence in the outdoors through this course.”
