Emphasis is placed on how to take care of the natural environment through sound ecological and environmental techniques.
The observance and appreciation of nature and the ecosystems in these wilderness adventures makes the outdoor experience more meaningful and makes significant contributions to the development of young people. Skills and attributes such as leadership, and teamwork boost young people's confidence and acceptance to the challenges they face in school, relationships, college, workplace, employers.
When young or old people experience wilderness adventures with greater know-ledge and nature accountability, the interactions and experiences widens one's hori-zons and perspectives making one more tolerant, compassionate, understanding and helpful towards other fellow human as a complete human being. Many of the child-ren's and youth programs facilitate a child to grow by successfully confronting a series of physical and interpersonal challenges. The wilderness and back country experience enhances a child's growth on many levels as they often return home more confident, more communicative, a better problem solver and more grounded. Children will often come back from the wildlife adventure experience with an inner peace and rested outlook with an innate knowledge that nature is both spiritual and physical and they seem much more in touch to reach beyond perceived limitations.
Llamas accompany people on walking expeditions that can last from as little as a few hours to several days. For longer trips, the llamas carry up to three days trekking supplies in pack saddles so the people can carry as little as a day backpack. Llamas have been used by people of the Andes mountains as pack animals for hundreds of years. With padded feet similar to a dog, llamas easily traverse steep and rocky paths while being more environmentally friendly to the ground than horse hooves. They have excellent endurance with a peaceful nature making them suitable pack animals for hill walking and for people not used to dealing with animals. Llamas are like companions for a relaxing stroll, much like walking your dog.
Llama Treks appeal to people who don't usually partake in endurance walking, or with groups that include disabled children. Llamas are great for close contact with children due to their docile and friendly natures. Llama trekking is an ideal therapeutic activity for disabled children. Parents report their children walking twice as far when accompanied by llamas. Autistic children respond especially well to llamas as their expressive eyes help them make their first sustained eye contact.
Llama treks are also a great way fo couples to experience a new romantic adventure looking for a new experiences to share together. Llamas are generally quiet but they have a diverse range of sounds to express their emotions-- hums, growls, clucks and snorts. The most common sound is a humming noise and it means the llama has some degree of concern, alarm or curiosity such as when meeting someone new. A female hums to her baby, reassuring that she is still around. Lamas are used in some of our animal assisted therapy programs. The llama wool is used for spinning and felting. It's a hollow-core fiber making it excellent for making warm clothing, hats, scarves, sweaters, blankets and socks. Choose the llama trek program that suits your level of hiking experience and physical fitness.
Experienced naturalist guides will teach you how to lead and communicate with your llama. There are 1, 2, 3 hour hikes and there are 1, 2, 3 day adventure expeditions. The guides will share their extensive knowledge of local ecology, the history of Rogue Valley with great stories of the first mountain men and fur trappers who explored the Rogue Valley and trails. These frontiersmen used their knowledge of the wilderness and survival skills and understood the animals, plants and various edible & medicinal plants.
