OUR PURPOSE

Our purpose is to build a community of inspired young outdoor enthusiasts who, as leaders, possess the tools, skills, and experience necessary to make sound decisions.

OUR PROGRAM

At Miramont by Genesis, we love working with kids. As our kids become young adults, we want to continue to grow with them and challenge them. The Adventure Leadership Program gives us the opportunity to engage with older youth outside the walls of our health clubs! We learn about climbing at our indoor facility, and take these skills outside to local climbing areas. We hone our paddling skills on Horsetooth, take guided whitewater rafting trips on the Poudre, and learn how to go camping or take a self-supported backpacking expeditions.

We believe that dynamic wilderness experiences have the ability to change lives and leave lasting impressions. As facilitators, we love witnessing positive growth and changes in our participants, and we know that the power of their experience is more impactful than we ever could be. Our first priority is always safety. The activities that we enjoy do not come without risk, but we let our adventurers take on appropriate challenges when they’re ready. An incredible thing happens when we educate kids about risks and what we do to manage them. They gain exposure to more complex decision-making and become empowered to tackle bigger obstacles while being capable of assessing risky situations in their own lives. We believe in the power of experiential learning, and deliver an experience that can help kids grow. We produce leaders who discover a greater sense of responsibility for themselves, their communities, and our planet.
