Welcome to our outdoor home!

Hi! Bruce here. Welcome to Born 2 Be Wild where you can Find Your Adventure!

Born 2 Be Wild outdoor adventures exists to help people know the joy of the outdoors and how to take care of it. We do that by offering 2 to 10-day backpacking trips in the wilderness where we teach you the basics of living in the backcountry, while helping you develop your relationship with God and others.

Each adventure typically includes your meals on the trail, rental backpacking gear (when needed) and spiritual guidance every morning and evening, weather permitting. We can even help you arrange carpooling to the trailheads.

Even if you’ve never been backpacking, we’ll get you the information you need for a great trip!
