Thanks to our contributors, The Brooklyn To Alaska Project, has lead over 100 Brooklyn teenagers on treks through the wilderness of Alaska. Our goal each year is to bring a dozen young men and women 5,000 miles from the city to a challenging and unforgettable two weeklong adventure in and around Wengall-St. Elias, America's largest National Park. Together we hike to and climb a glacier 30 miles long and 1,000 feet thick. We camp at the summit of a mountain. We embark on a four day rafting trip on the wild Chitina river. We visit an Alaskan homesteader and learn how he lives a sustainable life off the land. We explore old mines, swim in glacial waters, meet grizzlies and share unforgettable experiences.
