"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is men who have come alive."

- Howard Thurman

 Jesus told us in John 10:10 that He came so we would experience abundant life here on earth. The best thing for God, for our families, and for the world is for us to be fully alive as men.

New Wilderness Adventures has been helping men for the last 20 years find their pathways to the LIFE that Jesus talks about.  We do this through communities of like hearted men locally across the country, adventures, men's retreats, one-on-one coaching through our Guide Network, and ongoing resources.


Jesus molded what it looked like to live in a redemptive community with his disciples.  We believe in following that example.  Across the country men are gathering in their local communities to share life together, encouraging one another, sharing adventures, and more. 


We offer men's retreats across the country that are designed to help men breakthrough the barriers and find LIFE. These retreats are held throughout the year and cover a wide array of topics as seen below. 

Freedom and Life Bootcamp
Our Freedom and Life Bootcamp reorients men to God's intentions and masculine design. This is a must for every man and a great place to start in your journey!

The Summit
The Summit is a gathering of men who desire a clear vision for manhood. They seek restoration and purpose. They want to hear from God and gain strength and encouragement for the battle, advancing God's Kingdom.

Part of NWA's ministry over the last 20 years has been to encourage and help men launch into their NEXT step and adventure with God. You will join other men as you reorient your self to God’s story and your role in it.

Live Well, Love Well, Lead Well... Isn't that what every man longs to do in their life? This retreat examines the model set by Jesus to live, love and lead as men. 

Custom Retreats
We also work with churches and businesses to design a retreat with their goals in mind. Reach out to us to begin the conversation about what this looks like for you and your organization. 


NWA Guides are men who are passionate about helping others discover and fight for the life God intends.  Each Guide has a passion for the outdoors and has completed the necessary training to take men further down the pathway to LIFE


We offer ongoing resources to help equip you with the tools you'll need on the pathway to LIFE.
