The Outdoor and Wilderness experience

New England Wilderness An Ideal Setting For Growth

Our central Vermont setting is the ideal launching pad for adventure recreation and wilderness experiences. Many of the Northeast’s designated wilderness areas are under two hours away, while extensive state park systems, national forests, a national seashore and a national park are within a day’s drive. 

These locations offer the least travelled areas in the Northeast and give Confluence participants the ability to discover places few venture. Our home and neighboring states offer ocean beaches, rugged mountains, picturesque lakes and extensive river systems. These resources provide vast trail systems for excursions that support the therapeutic process, provide fun, adventure and a sense of community and accomplishment. For many Confluence Excursions offer truly transformative experiences that foster new perspectives and opportunities for healthy living.

Outdoor recreation is an avenue for positive, engaging and fun experiences that support and encourage growth and are available to participants of any skill and fitness level. The wilderness experience is sought to not only disconnect and rejuvenate but to provide a venue where emotional awareness and healing can take hold. Through the inherent challenges in these activities, participants gain valuable confidence and build resiliency that enhances the well being of each individual.
