Big thanks to Hannah E. Jones and our friends at the SaportaReport for their coverage of Wilderness Works’ programs.
Bill Mickler is quoted in the article about how campers’ experiences gained in nature, “…affect their character, life choices and self-concept. In other words, they think of themselves as somebody who’s expanded beyond a certain boundary and it gives them new identity and self-worth.”
Wilderness Works is open to children of families experiencing homelessness as well as those facing economic or social challenges. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from these programs, please contact our recruiting coordinator, Ebonie Martin.
