About This Event

We’ve all had those triumphant moments when we achieved something we once believed impossible. Whether physical or mental, these occasions encourage us to continue to step beyond our present limitations, and to discover new powers within ourselves. This is the spirit of THRIVE, and the culture that we foster on every trip. Our staff of athletes, artists, dance and yoga instructors, body therapists, coaches, optimists, and inspiration junkies is committed to helping you reach your full potential, in an atmosphere that is supportive, friendly, and non-competitive.
