More than ever before in our culture and society, young people need the opportunity to find and experience these things. At Northwaters and Langskib (NWL) we believe it is essential to their journey into adulthood.
We believe that when a young person steps off the pavement and into the natural world they move toward a deeper understanding of themselves. Journeying on the land and water with a group of peers, they are able to peel off the layers of societal norms and expectations and literally disconnect from the demanding world of technology and social media. They learn how to live simply, be resourceful and work hard.
Guided by mentors extensively trained in group dynamics, NWL participants learn to be themselves without the boundaries of judgment and self-doubt. They learn to communicate effectively—person to person and community member to community. They risk, challenge and overcome— individually and as a group. They realize what they are capable of and what their gifts are. Perhaps most importantly they have balanced out their busy, saturated lives back home with simple living, a little hard work, adventure and fun.
When you enroll your child at Northwaters and Langskib you are entrusting us with an awesome responsibility and a sacred duty. We are committed to honouring the trust you place in us throughout your child’s tenure at NWL.
Often, the process of attending to these details provides us with an opportunity to learn more about a participant and cultivate our relationships with parents. We welcome this and encourage you to contact us if we can be of service in any way.
Everyone you reach in our main office is, like you, a parent engaged in raising children the best way possible.
