What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    There are no maps, no step-by-step set of instructions to live a life of joy or meaning or happiness. What we need is a compass. At Pivot Adventure Co., we help adolescents develop a compass to navigate through life's challenges.

  • The leading cause of death for 12 to 17-year-olds is suicide.

    "I usually don't feel like opening up but for some reason with this group it feels okay to share."

    That's the magic of Pivot Adventure. We create space to talk about meaningful things by doing things that are meaningful. We don't teach to the student but rather with them. Our team combines the efforts and insights of the student, parents/guardians and guides to help accelerate the change you seek to make.

    Experiential education is typically only available in residential/wilderness therapy programs that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Because of costs, so many students miss out on the benefits of having recreation in their lives. Pivot Adventure Co. now offers the only affordable option. No need to take out a second mortgage or to sacrifice your retirement to participate.

    "Excellent guides...They taught me proper techniques and gave me feedback on how to ride safely. Most of all they were patient and encouraging. My confidence and skill level increased throughout the ride so that by the end I felt comfortable navigating obstacles on my own."
