We connect people to adventure.  We want each student in our Guide Program to lead through experience, to become more aware of their own ability and potential, and to experience transformation through direct connection with the wilderness.  Guides meet weekly in the ARC.  Check with ARC staff to find out when we're meeting.  Join us!!
