Transformative weekends at the edge of a vexing wilderness!
All Heroes Academy programs give mature teens a transformative experience within intensive programs. Besides “out of game” assistance and safety oversight, our staff do not interfere in the decisions and consequences of the group’s actions. Because of this structure, the participants must overcome challenges on their own, including the “Heroes Journey” challenges of internal growth in the areas of accountability, leadership, honor, and planning.
Heroes Academy programs vary locations based on the program. These transformative weekends take place at a living village at the edge of a vexing wilderness!
