Wild Pathways is unique from other river expeditions with Deer Hill because the group will do a multi-day canoe trek. Participants will paddle Labyrinth Canyon on the Green River in canoes, participate in service-learning on the Navajo Nation, and embark on an epic backpacking trip in the San Juan Mountains.

The canyons, the service and the mountains brought new experiences and meaning, yet the mountains provided an environment in which all my lessons and experiences came together. The hikes in the mountains opened my eyes to my own strengths both physically and as a leader, and provided a new appreciation for these activities, journeys and the wilderness. The times in which the instructors recognized my strengths were reassuring and motivating. But also, when the instructors forced you to learn without assistance were more memorable because it pushed me out of my comfort zone into a place where they knew I would succeed despite the obstacles and danger. This is why a leadership course is the most meaningful of all the courses.Isabelle, participant
