A culminating experience designed to bring Purpose-Driven Adventure Therapy to
Outback. PEAK is a week of high adventure activities specifically for students
approaching transition from wilderness. Adventure Therapy is introduced to fuel critical
analysis of acquired skills and identify continued areas of growth and focus moving forward.

progress made, and REalign focus for sustained success. This PEAK experience provides
students and families with the most comprehensive and up-to-date road map for adventures

ASSESSMENT OF WHERE THEY ARE NOW
Staff, as well as students, have a unique opportunity to
re-evaluate various levels of growth and success
focused on measuring aptitude level for transition and
