For over 20 years, Summit Achievement has offered an established youth recovery program that embraces far more than the positive impact of the great outdoors. Founders Chris Mays, Adam Tsapis, and Will White instituted a model where parent involvement and mental health professionals, paired with  the transformative power of the wilderness, are key in ensuring long lasting and meaningful change for youth.
