Crossings is a trip designed for those who are navigating the transition to life after college. Participants spend 7 days paddling through the Ten Thousand Islands of the Florida Everglades with other recent graduates who are making the same transition. As you learn to successfully navigate the waters of the Everglades, you will also learn what it takes to successfully navigate calling, relationships and possessions in the post-college world.

“Now that I am a full-time employee, I can most definitely see the benefits of my trip. Crossings taught me to be fearless. Learning to navigate on unsteady waters and sharing my personality and opening up to new people definitely prepared me to live with less fear in the future. Creating and discussing our future goals gave me a sense of accountability to accomplish these goals.”
