Northern Lakes Impact Center

Wilderness Trips

Our world is loud, hyper-connected, and fast-paced. We live busy, tired, selfishly, and much too disconnected from everyone and everything around us. Wilderness settings on the other hand, are the exact opposite. They are quieter by nature, slow-paced, and encourage us to be connected and in the moment. The wilderness also often provides us permission and space to slow down, relax, and have some much needed connection and fun.

This is why here at the Northern Lakes Impact Center we have designed our wilderness trips with our participants in mind. We pride ourselves on designing trips that encompass not only rest for the soul, but technical and personal challenges and of course some good fun and relaxation. Our emphasis on personal, leadership, and technical transformation make any of our many wilderness trips a life-changing experience.

As participants on Northern Lakes Impact Center wilderness trips, your guides will provide the structure and space for you to learn technical skills such as rock climbing, canoeing, backpacking, and outdoor living, while also being able to develop more practical life skills such as teamwork, communication, leadership development, and more.
