Take a Hike

How you handle a wilderness challenge can tell you a lot about your ability to cope with life. Voyageur Outward Bound School (now part of Outward Bound Wilderness) offers a Life Career Renewal program that's designed for those seeking renewed energy and a new direction. The course runs from seven to 14 days at locations in Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, and Texas.

A recent check of OBW's website showed a list of many other available locations (including Alaska, Colorado, Utah, and Florida, as well as the Caribbean and South America). Call toll-free 866-467-7651 or check
