Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing is the most prestigious summer adventure camp on the east coast. We have been successfully and safely leading youth trips for over 20 years. Our staff go through one of the longest and most rigorous trainings in the industry, and we have an immaculate safety record to prove it. Our programs are designed to allow our participants to have fun, while also challenging themselves. We offer them what is known in the industry as “perceived risk”, but the actual activities are just as safe as participating in organized sports at school. But don’t just take our word for it!

Testimonial letter from a former employee:
20 Feb. 2011
To The Exceptional Staff at Wilderness Adventure:
First, I hope this letter finds you all well, and that WAEL is flourishing! I’m writing to you to thank you, and the organization itself, for impressive integrity and genuine care for employees.
I worked for WAEL Summer 2008. I had just spent 6 months in Africa, and Pete hired me in January. Already I had a good impression of the company thanks to his easy going nature and bright personality. When I arrived, I was met with such warmth and kindness it was wonderful. I didn’t know how remarkable the welcome was until years later, after I had something to compare it to. The staff training embodied everything that WAEL was about—close bonding, all skill levels coming together and sharing, skills that would last, practices that are tried and true, etc. They truly fostered an environment where everyone felt comfortable, welcome, and included. Furthermore, the concept of the staff manual being a critical resource was so helpful. We would be taught everything we needed during training, then if at any point we forgot something, we had the staff manual to rely on. Because of that consistency, I always felt comfortable in any situation. Furthermore, as long as we followed the policies in the staff manual, we knew we would have full support of the company in the event of an accident or something of the sort. WAEL truly does have an impressive, unique training period. It is to be recognized as outstanding and its meticulous organization does not go unnoticed….
Overall, I simply wanted… to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all your hard work. While you may not hear it often enough, you have a unique and exceptional program that really does change people’s lives. As someone who has seen the interworkings of multiple companies, I can certainly vouch for the superior quality of WAEL’s treatment of its employees. I thought it was important to write you a letter telling you to keep up the good work! You have only my best wishes and encouragement!
