The three peaks of upadowna
The mission of the Summit Series program is to empower individuals to reach new goals for their health and wellness and to challenge their comfort zone by participating in fulfilling and rewarding adventure activities and classes.
This program is a series of activities and classes that focus on an individual skill or adventure. Goals of this program are to:
- help participants try a new lifetime activity
- create a safe and fun environment to step out of one’s comfort zone
- and help individuals overcome a fear, apprehension, or questions about the activity.
With a focus on empowering individuals to “reach a peak” that they have identified as a barrier or goal ie: trying a new activity, adaptive adventures, scholarships to camps, entry fees to races, overcoming fears, etc. The Summit Series activities will also allow for growth by increasing one’s knowledge and skills with a “series” of classes that build upon the initial base.

Leave No Trace Classes
Environment Essentials is focused on taking care of what we use. By incorporating our trail and park cleanups into this program, we provide a connection from outdoor activity to environmental stewardship. Adopting principles like Leave No Trace, and SHIFT, we’ll help each individual that participates in this program to understand their connection to nature and the importance of taking care of what we have. Goals of this program are to:
- teach responsible recreation
- encourage environmental stewardship
- provide environmentally friendly tools, tips, & techniques
This program is focused on making sure there are plenty of opportunities for the community to “give back” to the land that gives so much to us. In many places, our trails are “loved to death”, with minimal care or maintenance. Environment Essentials will help provide tools, tips, and techniques to help individuals minimize their impact on nature.
