“My son was emotionally hurting and acted out destructively, when his father and I separated. My son was able to regain his focus and confidence through his experience with the Wilderness Challenge. I will forever be thankful for the experience and guidance you provided to him during this important time in his life.”


“My son came to your program an angry boy, and he came back to me a responsible young man. Thank you.”


“My son just returned from the Diakon Wilderness Challenge and all I can say is WOW! I am blown away. I can’t say enough about the program and how it not only transformed my son and his way of thinking, but also changed the lives of the other eight young men that were on the journey with my son.”
