“Phil Costello’s vision for Project U.S.E. will always live: to provide people of all ages, enmeshed in modern-day life, with opportunities to undergo positive, personal growth through wilderness experiences and journeys. Those journeys occur as much out in the wilderness as in each one of us. Since 1982, almost 1,000 children, teenagers, and parents have joined us in sharing outdoor education with Project U.S.E. They continue to attest that their participation was, and for many still is, a life-altering revelation.
No one EVER forgets a Project U.S.E. trip.
