Goals & Objectives:

  • through challenge and accomplishment/achievement in remote wilderness settings, PROJECT LOST seeks to restore the client’s sense of perception of self worth
  • by assisting our clients to re-discover a strong, positive sense of self, we can nurture several key strategies for life-long success…. a key component or addition to an existing therapeutic intervention program
  • to promote effective skills in decision-making, self-discipline/reliance, team building, leadership, communication, empathy, and social problem-solving
  • to provide a stimulating, empowering, nature-based, and safe environment in which to practise and learn these life-skills
  • to help our clients develop awareness of their individual styles of personalities and interacting….and to learn what works and what doesn’t
  • to promote self-esteem and build self-confidence
  • TO HELP CLIENTS SURVIVE AND SUCCEED TO PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE AND HAPPINESS, AND REDUCE THEIR RELIANCE ON THE SOCIAL SYSTEM, ABUSIVE PERSONS, AND ALCOHOL-DRUGS

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STRATEGY/PROTOCOLS:

Project LOST aims to instill solid environmental respect values (to clients and staff)

Therefore, we will practise the following environmental ethics on all outings:

  • no-trace camping ethic
  • improve the campsite and trails/portages policy (clean-ups)
  • maintain site carrying-capacity and sustainability thresholds; e.g., maximum of 9 campers/staff at an interior campsite, gather firewood far from campsite, no glass bottles or tin cans
  • respect for flora and fauna (all living things)
  • respect fellow and other campers/staff; e.g., noise levels, behaviour
