“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. The staff was awesome and the things they taught my son are beyond anything I could have hoped for. My son has an entirely different attitude and he is so confident and proud to share all that he has learned. I can't thank the staff enough for giving my son a second chance at a healthy life and with a set of emotional tools that he can use for the rest of his life. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Diakon.”

—Victoria, the mother of a member of the Wilderness Challenge’s first young-adult group
