The Adventure Academy
Learn Life Skills and Secret Paths
Adventure Academy programs give participants a transformative and educational experience within workshops, excursions, and intensive programs. They also foster real-world skills and provide opportunities to overcome challenges on their own and with the invaluable help of other participants, including the “Heroes Journey” challenges of internal growth in the areas of accountability, leadership, honor, and planning.
Each provides unique in-game rewards, plus real-world skills that last a lifetime.
