"Among those professionals with whom I have worked in the arena of adventure programming and teambuilding, Josh clearly stands out as one of the most knowledgeable, genuine, friendly, and effective leaders in the field today.  His humor, insight, and dedication to assisting groups and individuals to attain deeper levels of understanding and more meaningful and healthy styles of interaction are the hallmarks of his contribution to the field.  Josh's programs are authentic in the most meaningful sense of the word"  J.W.

Josh is able to create an experience that not only encourages physical, emotional, and spiritual growth, but helps participants realize their potential to be positive members of the greater community and to take that awareness home with them and put it to work."
