The Guiding Principles of the Foundation are to create opportunities where:

• Challenge, adventure, and exploration foster one's self-discovery,
• Participants cultivate and nurture their gifts and sense of purpose, and
• Out of their experience, they are invited and encouraged to offer it to others. 

Our work locally impacts life choices, provides opportunities for getting outdoors, challenges youth leaders in outdoor wilderness immersions, and supports sustainable agriculture, artists and artisans, and the work of non-profits serving locally through collaboration and partnership.
