New Treks Values
We teach a fundamental understanding of how to perform safely in an outdoor setting. Making sure participants, and employees, are safe with their surroundings, in the activity, and self care is important.
We want to make outdoor recreation and education a pleasurable experience for everyone. This includes ensuring everyone is fed, hydrated, dry, and comfortable.
We ensure participants are broadening their mental and physical capabilities. We want to create out of the box thinkers and help participants achieve new heights.
The finish line does not end when they reach their goal. Participants will understand goals can be obtained and higher goals should be established to further progress.
Teaching participants that limitations can be overcome not only with assistance, but from within. We want to build up their expectations for themselves.
We want to create a new healthy and exciting way of life for youth. Give them a new opportunity so they know new possibilities.
We give youth a chance to learn who they are. They will foster new friendships and learn to trust themselves and others.
