Supported Programs

In addition to our many North American and International trips for adults, Wilderness Inquiry provides a variety of programs and services designed to promote involvement in outdoor pursuits for youth, families, persons with developmental disabilities and others. Programs include:

  • Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventures (UWCA®) introduces urban youth and families to the wilderness in their own backyards. Includes day and overnight trips geared toward schools, youth groups, churches, friends and families.

  • The Canoemobile® is helping to bring environmental literacy and engagement to urban youth throughout the United States.

  • Many families have an interest in sharing adventures together, but lack the means or know-how to do outings that include a child or parent with a disability. Project FIT provides additional support in the form of staff, personal care attendants, adapted equipment and financial assistance to help make the outdoors accessible for all families.

     

  • Gateway To Adventure is an innovative program designed to provide people with cognitive disabilities the opportunity to learn and practice the kinds of social and practical skills typically needed to have a safe, enjoyable outdoor adventure experience.

  • In addition to our trips, Wilderness Inquiry participates in many community events throughout the year. We hope you will join us at these public events and get involved.

Wilderness Inquiry conducts these and other programs serving a variety of people in several communities. Learn more about these programs and how you can support our efforts.
