Our Mission:

To Empower those facing adversity and trauma by providing therapeutic wilderness programs.

 

 

LEAP creates opportunities for healing and growth through immersive wilderness programs that support people affected by significant health issues, psychological distress, and socioeconomic adversity. Our five-day whitewater kayaking experiences on the wild and scenic Lower Salmon River connect individuals to the therapeutic qualities of nature while encouraging them to harness their strength and recognize their innate value and abilities.

We maximize our impact by organizing each program around groups with shared life experiences, enabling them to foster close-knit communities and thrive in an environment of mutual understanding and openness. LEAP works closely with community-based partner organizations and their specialists and caregivers to build relationships and provide continuity within the greater service plan for each individual.

SPREAD THE good WORD

We understand the relationship between the river and the personal journey towards recovery and health. This is what makes what we do special. Share your love for the wilderness and what it does to help you on social by using the hashtag #NATUREHEALS.
