Experiencing Outdoor Adventures with a group of peers can only enhance the traditional program.  By developing Peer Groups, we hope to provide a venue where by each person can more intimately share personal life experiences, develop camaraderie with people of similar abilities, and benefit from peer knowledge. 

Peer Groups help to foster support systems that will accelerate the already established benefits of Outdoor Adventures, enhance a willingness to participate in new activities and promote the opportunity for peer relationship outside of Outdoor Adventures.
