This is a special week here at Youth Odyssey. We our joined for the first time by our newest team member! Adam is super excited to start getting his hands into everything that is going on with Youth Odyssey. He has tons of outdoor experience and loves meeting new people. After receiving his undergrad in Outdoor Leadership Ministries, Adam continued his education. He is currently completing his Masters Degree in Outdoor Program Management.
Adam was born and raised in Arkansas. It was here where he first experienced his love for the outdoors. Through playing in the mountains and rivers of the Ozarks, He began to appreciate nature more and more. Soon he began challenging himself more with skills such as rock climbing, white water kayaking, and any other activity that would get him outdoors.
Adam furthered his love and understanding of the outdoors by attending John Brown University. Here, he received his bachelor’s degree in Outdoor Leadership Ministries. He is currently pursuing his master’s in Outdoor Program Management. In addition to this, he also has his Wilderness First Responder Certification. Adam is constantly looking for other ways to enrich his knowledge of the outdoors. We love his professionalism and dedication to his work. He will fit right in with our team and bring some new ideas to help propel us in this coming year.
Let’s all say Hello!
During his years at John Brown University, Adam worked at a summer camp in Northeast Oklahoma as an Adventure Education Guide and Lead Ropes Course Technician. He also spent a two summers at HoneyRock in Northern Wisconsin, facilitating the ropes course and a mentor programming. His passion there was to help others find their own love for the outdoors, just as he did. His goal at HoneyRock fits right in with our mission to help the youth in the Coastal Bend. Youth Odyssey is honored to have him join the team, and cant wait for him to start running programs of his own.
