Introducing Peak 7 Adventures


Peak 7 Adventures is a grassroots outdoor adventure non-profit organization aimed at taking young people into the wilderness to show them the wonder of God's creation. Wilderness adventures challenge participants to expand their horizons by fostering trust relationships and team building skills.

Peak 7 targets youth who are underprivileged or have been labeled "at-risk". We provide a positive alternative to the typical behaviors and habits that youth in our society often fall into.

Peak 7 whitewater rafting and kayaking, rock climbing and backpacking trips challenge these youth physically, mentally, and spiritually; encouraging them to evaluate what they put their faith in. These once-in-a-lifetime opportunities have an immeasurable impact on the participants and promote all-around healthier lifestyles.

Most individuals in our targeted population cannot afford the cost. We therefore rely on individual and corporate contributions to subsidize these trips. If you would like to partner with us in this endeavor, please go to Thanks for joining the team.


A tale of how to protect your gear

Paul Delaney enjoys the fact that his stolen raft returned home after two years in the hands of thieves. This photo was taken May 9 in the same driveway the boat was stolen from on May 19, 2007.
