Annual Expedition Application Opens
Adventure beckons. Form new relationships and create memories in this no-cost unforgettable journey around the San Juan Islands. Come paddle with us!
Immerse yourself in a life-changing sea kayaking experience with Recovery Beyond by exploring the 400 islands and outcrops of the beautiful San Juan Islands. You will be able to escape your daily routine, discover stunning wilderness areas, and spend quality time reflecting with others in recovery.
You don’t need to have previous sea kayaking experience, our partners from Outward Bound will teach you skills for wilderness travel—how to pack appropriately, paddle kayaks, set up tarps, cook, and navigate the sea. Our patrol will paddle through the inland waterways, moving our camp from island to island while navigating the changing currents of the Salish Sea. The expedition also cultivates skills around leadership, character development, service to others, and interpersonal development. Wilderness travel is challenging, but with appropriate pre-course preparation and using provided tools, individuals of various ages and body types can be successful.
If you are chosen for this exceptional trip, Recovery Beyond will help you become as physically prepared as possible so that you can take full advantage of the opportunity.
