San Juan Wilderness - Adventure Program
San Juan Wilderness is the most Adventure Oriented Wilderness
Our students naturally respond well to healthy risk-taking. We focus on the physical and emotional safety of our students, and all activities are “Challenge by Choice.” To overcome these obstacles as a group, students must embrace teamwork, perseverance, and self-confidence. Success depends on planning, practice and performance, not to mention a positive mental attitude. These lessons transfer to life when students participate in school, college, athletics, and in the workplace. Students emerge from these courses with an increased resistance to negative influences, and with skills that can be used throughout their lives.

Rock Climbing: Safety Lecture, Equipment Check, Ground-School Practice, Knots, Anchors, Belaying, Rappelling, Climbing Techniques and climbs of various difficulty.
