Human Development Retreats

fallsMany of our guests comment about the "spiritual awakening" and clarity of thought they feel while in the Yellowstone backcountry. This makes our backcountry pack trips the perfect environment for a retreat.

To provide retreats, we partner with Gary Matthews, LCPC, CFP®, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Financial Planner® in Bozeman, MT. Wilderness Pack Trips offers custom retreats integrated with our existing backcountry pack trips. Types of retreats available include:

Strategic Planning Retreats

Developing a strategic plan requires the time and focus of key organizational leaders. In the "human world", opportunities to isolate and focus these leaders can be difficult to find. Interruptions and distractions guarantee failure in the strategic planning process. In the "natural world" of the Yellowstone backcountry, interruptions and distractions do not exist. We are continually amazed at how well the Yellowstone backcountry facilitates consensus-building, negotiation, and problem solving.
