Each year, a new selection of Hante Adventure wilderness trips are offered. Whether they’re rock climbing in Colorado, whitewater paddling in North Carolina or trekking across the Blue Ridge Mountains, Hante participants are sure to come away from their experience with confidence and a strong connection to nature.

No previous experience is needed for any of these adventures, although being in good physical shape is necessary. Follow our Suggestions for Hante Preparation to ensure you are physically ready for the adventures that await.

All Hante participants and their parents must complete a Questionnaire before being considered for acceptance. To receive the Questionnaire, we must first receive the Hante Application and Deposit.  Register for a 2021 Hante!  (*) Select Hantes have an application deadline of November 15th and are not eligible for the Early Bird Discount.  Rolling admittance pending availability after November 15th for (*)Hantes.
