Swany’s Challenge is an adventure therapy experience aimed at supporting male-identified young adults living with mental illness and addiction. The program will incorporate a series of nature and trip-based experiences geared to support behavioral change. It is a multi-day therapeutic wilderness paddling expedition led by certified guides and counselors. It will provide participants with the means to reconnect with themselves and the natural world while bonding with others who share similar life challenges. Participants will have the opportunity to hear the stories of others, recognize they are not alone in their struggles, and support each other in meaningful ways. Swany’s Challenge has been created in memory of Jonathan Cosman who, more than anything, loved spending time outdoors with family and friends.
