Mission Statement

To provide educational experiences in outdoor settings that create opportunities for reflection and self development and serve to strengthen one's connections and sense of responsibility to the human community and natural environment.


Wilderness Experience Programs for teens and adults that take place in the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness in northern MN. Reach for the Stars (teen program) is designed to give (at risk) teens the opportunity to grow in the areas of self confidence, competency, and problem solving skills. In a 7 day canoeing/camping adventure, they discover what they are capable of and walk away feeling proud of their acheivement. Along with personal growth, keen lessons on the importance of working together as a team are reinforced throughout the trip. Respect and safety are practiced in every aspect of the experience. Respect for self, others, equipment, and the environment. Safety is observed in areas of emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical well being. Similar programs are offered for parent/teens, women, and couples.

Would you recommend PaddleQuest: Adventures of Discovery, Inc.?

This is an amazing organization with wonderful directors. Bill and Nedra have formed a group, along with Jerry Stegman and others, that reaches out to teens in a compassionate and motivated way and allows them to learn about themselves through a nature-inspired, 7-day trip to the Boundary Waters wilderness area of Minnesota. The kids have a great time and gain strength and understanding during their time spent camping and canoeing. I highly recommend this adventure-experience and I think that the volunteers learn as much as the kids!
