Safety is certainly our number one concern on our expeditions (as well as on campus). We have many protocols in place to help keep our groups safe in the wilderness. All of our Guides are trained in backcountry safety and have extensive personal experience camping and hiking in the wilderness. We take care to teach important expedition safety skills to all of our students. As for the animals, fortunately most are more scared of us than we are of them, and they tend to avoid our noisy groups easily. For the occasional run in with a moose or bear, our staff are trained on what to do to keep the group safe and how to move away from the animal.
