FAQ

Q.  My child does not have a formal diagnosis of anxiety or depression.  Can I still apply? 

A.  Yes!  A formal diagnosis is not required for participation. Our adventures are thoughtfully designed to specifically benefit children who may need a little additional support, particularly those who experience fears, worry, perfectionism, difficulties with transitions, withdrawal or similar challenges.  If you feel your child could benefit from emotion regulation, coping skills, or mindfulness training, please apply! 

Q.  I'm not sure if my child can climb / ski / paddle or if they will enjoy the experience. Should I register anyway? 

A.   At The Courage Project, we welcome children of all ability levels!  Our philosophy is to meet children where they are and to gently and gradually encourage them to explore the boundaries of their comfort zone.  With this     sensitive and supportive approach, children are set up for success!  It's amazing what a little inspiration can do.  

Q.  What measures do you take to protect the safety of your participants? 

A.  Safety is our top priority.  In order to provide a safe, fun experience, with lots of one-on-one attention, we limit participation to maintain small group sizes, provide all necessary safety items, and welcome skilled volunteers and coaches to assist us. 

Q.  We're behind your mission all the way and would love to be involved.  Is The Courage Project looking for sponsors or partners? 

A. Absolutely!  We have a fantastic team of sponsors and we're adding to the roster regularly.  Our sponsors provide resources, money, and manpower to help keep The Courage Project in action.  If you're interested in facilitating a partnership or sponsorship contact us at info@courageproject.org  

Q.  May I donate equipment, food, or other resources?

A.  Yes, please! We welcome donations and are so grateful for your generosity .  If you're interested in donating please visit our Donation page or contact us at info@courageproject.org

Q.  I have both a child with anxiety and a child without any mental/behavioral health concerns. Do you accept sibling registrations for adventures?  

A.  We welcome everyone in the family to enjoy a day in the mountains with us, but participation in our structured adventures is reserved specifically for children with anxiety and depression.  

Q. How can I apply for an adventure?  

A.  Visit our Adventures page and click on the activity you'd like to attend.   If registration for an upcoming event is open, just fill out the required information and wait for a confirmation email.  Because we always limit group size to create the best experience possible, spots can fill up fast. If you're interested in participating, we encourage you to reserve a spot now by requesting to be added to the waitlist for a particular adventure.
