West Coast Location Celebrates 1 Year 

Our West Coast team, based out of Bend, Oregon celebrates a successful first year of operation, providing top-notch adolescent and young adult programming. Our new "home base" located in beautiful Bend, OR, creates a safe and welcoming atmosphere for visitors and families. The home also creates a safe space for the L.O.F.T., Life Opportunities for Transformation, a unique transitional component for our young adult programming. The L.O.F.T. supports clients with life coaching after completion of Wilderness Immersion.

The West Coast operates under a special use permit with the Willamette and Deschutes National Forest, and includes several new field operation locations beginning May 1st. The new locations offer varied terrain, eco-variety, and is closer to base operations. The proximity to Bend allows quicker accessibility supporting clients and staff in our customized approach. Our field staff are gearing up for a busy season, and currently mapping, scouting, and planning for the best use of our permitted areas. We anticipate expanded adventure education opportunities taking full advantage of all that Central Oregon has to offer.
