MSWAT - Montana Summer Wilderness Adventures for Teens (Scheduled to open TBA)

The quiet wisdom of nature does not try to mislead you like the landscape of the city does, with billboards and ads everywhere.  It doesn’t make you feel like you have to conform to any image.  It’s just there, and it accepts everyone. -Erin Lau from the book Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv

Montana Summer Wilderness Adventures for Teens (MSWAT) is the newest adventure offered by Absaroka-Beartooth Outfitters Inc. MSWAT is a comprehensive summer educational program that challenges teenagers to become confident and capable in a wilderness environment and facilitates teamwork and leadership development. We believe these lessons apply not only to the wilderness but to the challenges teens face growing up in our modern urban world. And what better setting for experiential education than the most magnificent landscape in North America – the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness?

Designed by educators who have a passion for the wilderness and are dedicated to the growth and well-being of young people, this adventure promises to be fun, yet challenging for each participant. Instruction in wilderness survival, horsemanship, conservation education, and “leave no trace” camping are just a few of the lessons students will experience.

Our trained mountain guides will serve as MSWAT instructors. They are all licensed guides for the State of Montana and certified as Wilderness First Responders. As instructors, they seek to inspire in participants a love for the wilderness and an enthusiasm for challenge.

We have a very limited number of spaces available, so the written application is very important. Please take the time to fill it out carefully, and feel free to call or email with any questions.

Digital Photography and Photoshop Wilderness Workshop
Instructor, Ansen Seale

Hiking. Trout fishing. Photography. Expert photoshop training. Combine these elements for an experience you'll never forget!

Whether you are a serious hobbyist or graphic arts professional, the knowledge you gain in this intensive 5-day experience will send you back to civilization with real-world skills in digital photography and photo editing.

Now it's possible to combine digital technology and the great outdoors for a truly creative experience! Advances in mobile computing and digital cameras have given us the opportunity to "close the loop" on shooting, editing and learning -- all in a remote wilderness setting.

Our "outdoor classroom" is a million acres of National forest set aside for exactly what we're doing--observing and appreciating nature's grandeur and beauty. Getting to camp requires some stamina, mostly on the part of the horses and mules, but humans need to be in good shape as well. And the extra effort is worth it. This is high altitude back-country that few people have ever seen.
