Offering counseling and adventure experiences that deepen, strengthen, and nourish connection with one's self, community, and the natural world.



Adventure Retreats

Retreats vary in length from one to ten days and are facilitated in a diversity of settings, including Western North Carolina, Patagonia, the San Juan Islands and more. Sparking creativity in Spring, nurturing rejuvenation in Winter, exploring an international sense of community in the South American Summer; through all of these adventures you are invited to deepen your sense of self in relationship to others and the natural world.

Custom Experiences

Are you a part of a group who would benefit from an adventure crafted with intention? ARC can work with you to create an individualized experience that highlights your group's strengths while also brings you closer to one another and the natural world.
