Live Adventurously is a nomination-based scholarship program for individuals to participate in a backcountry wilderness adventure, trying new activities, stepping outside their comfort zones and building confidence through the great outdoors.
Participants are disconnected from technology, live off the grid by camping or backpacking in remote locations with little to no modern amenities. Special guests come in to assist in facilitating in different activities. The wilderness adventure includes education of outdoor recreation including how to build a fire, filter water, read a map, hang food, and education on specific facilitated activities such as mountain biking skills, safety, trail etiquette, etc. Culturally the participants undergo challenges together that bond one another through their time together in the wilderness, coming in as strangers they leave as great friends through their shared experiences. The Giveaway promotes mental stamina by asking participants to share a tent, share food together and team build through obstacles they undergo. The physical challenge of the activities they are asked to do such as hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, canoeing, white water rafting, sailing, yoga, rappelling, wild caving, rock climbing, and more. Emotional growth is achieved through facilitated mindfulness and meditation.
Live Adventurously is named after the award-winning film based off of the 2015 Women's Adventure Giveaway program created and founded by Danielle and Kate Nolan, owners of outdoor adventure company, DNK Presents. See the trailer below and learn more about the film on this website.
