FULL DAY PROGRAMS

Rock climbing, rappelling, navigation, and structured reflection 

AML offers full day programs for groups that may include rock climbing, rappelling, hiking, navigation, and remote scenic reflection time. All of our full day programs will provide challenging experiences followed by periods of reflection and learning. We believe that challenging activities such as rock-climbing are rich in lessons, and we're committed to helping participants fully unpack those lessons and return to their communities, schools, and homes with a greater awareness and capacity to be positive influencers. 

  • AML provides all technical equipment required for full day programs.
  • A nutritious and energy rich lunch and snack options are included in our full day program services.
  • All AML programs start remotely, meaning your group will be responsible for transportation to the designated trailhead or program location.
  • Full day programs start at just $60 per participant. 
  • Our fee structure is based on a group minimum of 8 participants. We can serve a maximum of 12 participants on our full day programs.

OVERNIGHT AND MULTI-DAY PROGRAMS

Rock climbing, rappelling, navigation, and structured reflection COMBINATION

Our overnight adventures are truly immersive experiences. Our trained Instructors lead your group on a one to five night (or longer) backpacking trip in the beautiful and rugged mountains of western North Carolina. We can even include rock-climbing and rappelling into your group's experience. The reward of groups navigating the terrain together, cooking together, setting up a bear-hang together, solving problems together, being challenged together and experiencing success together is substantial. 

We are committed to tapping into the powerful leadership lessons that are present when a group goes on expedition together. We have a deep passion for drawing out the leadership potential within each member of a group.

  • AML provides all technical equipment required for multi-day programs.
  • All food for the duration of multi-day programs will be provided by AML.
  • All AML programs start remotely, meaning your group will be responsible for transportation to the designated trailhead or program location.
  • Multi-day programs start at just $55 per participant, per day.
  • Our fee structure is based on a group minimum of 8 participants. We can serve a maximum of 12 participants on our multi-day programs.
