It has been our observation over the years that the most powerful way to form transformative relationships is through shared experience. We are taking that shared experience to the next level. Taking kids outside their normal environment to see a world that's bigger than the one they know. We stand behind the idea that sometimes a little fresh air can clear up life's foggiest of matters, and only in nature can you really discover how far you can go, finding then that you can go a little further. Some of life's greatest views come at the end of the hardest of climbs. Go for it! We're with you!

“There is more in us than we know. If we can just be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we’ll be unwilling to settle for less “

"...I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water..."

One-Eighty “One-Day Trips” are exciting day trips designed to get youth and young adults out of Lodi and into a bigger world. Places like Yosemite National Park & the North Coast,
and experiences like rock climbing, kayaking, and tide pooling can be expected on these days.
The cost is kept to a minimum, and the experiences are geared toward kids of all skill levels.
Base Camp Expeditions
Our newest adventures, Base Camp Expeditions are the result of a brand new partnership with the Lodi Parks and Recreation Office. These 4 or 5-day experiences will take students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to some of our state's most beautiful and wild places. They will learn outdoor skills, gain a greater understanding of conservation and natural science, and discover life and leadership skills in a way that no other format can bring out. Trips will include Monterey Bay, the Tahoe Basin, Yosemite, and Humboldt Redwoods State Park, and are offered free of charge to qualified individuals.
The One-Eighty Wilderness Treks takes things to the “next level.” These multi-day, backcountry adventures are designed to develop life and leadership skills for young people ready to accept challenges, test their limits, and overcome obstacles. We will put on our backpacks and head into God’s wild places. We will build trust, self-awareness, goal-setting, communication, and productive life skills. We won’t be the same when we get home. *The Wilderness Experience isn’t limited to One-Eighty’s program. Contact us if you are interested in a customized experience for your group.
One-Eighty Adventures is a mission endeavor. This means that in order for us to provide transformative programs like One-Eighty Adventures, we need your support. The Support Trek is an opportunity for you to contribute to the transformation of young lives and gain the powerful perspective that comes with time spent in the wild. The net results of the Mission Support Treks will provide opportunities for countless at-risk young people to have the experience of a lifetime and to broaden their vision beyond their circumstances.
