Mission Statement

The mission of Project Great Outdoors is to guide youth towards broader perspectives and self-discovery through adventures in the great outdoors.

Description

Our philosophy at Project GO involves turning kids onto a healthier outlook on life by introducing them to environments that pose opportunities and challenges that result in a newfound sense of confidence and resilience. It’s about understanding the value of taking healthy risks, alone as well as in the company of others. Founded in 1999 by three river guides, Project GO is a healthy balance of education and adventure: An experience that leaves young people changed for the better.

We believe in the value of adventure. Adventure involves both risk and challenge, each of which, if at an appropriate level, have been shown to increase the longevity of experiential learning, and the transference of lessons gleaned.
