The Survivor Quarter is an exciting 2.5-month immersion program (Jan/Feb/Mar) that includes 70 days of intense, hands-on leadership challenges and skill-building sessions in the outdoors. The Hawaiian coastline is our playground for this winter program – an ideal environment for outdoor exploration!
