It seems there haven't been any comments for a while but I felt like contributing to this way of life and why some of us choose it. My predominant career was with 'youth at risk", a term I don't like much but historically people understand its meaning. This career has been emotionally, physically challenging, frustrating from the constant changes in philosophy. Add to that legal aspects or gaining permissions to incorporate outdoor and wilderness modalities. Equally challenging had been setting supportive boundaries for kids who've finally learned to trust "us" the down to earth educators who may have been the only ones who provided opportunities to show them their strengths rather than their failures. The greatest successes came from taking them out of the failed systems and into the wilds of woods where they overcame a different fear and accomplished something for themselves rather than overcoming the issues and people who molded them into their current oppressive and battered situation.
