Spending time in nature with women is joyful.  We can let our hair down, act like a kid and allow inhibitions to melt away. I believe in the power of the natural world to create an avenue for healing, building self confidence, overcoming obstacles, creating meaningful relationships, and building trust in ourselves and others. Through North Star Adventures you will gain the confidence to push outside your “comfort zone” in a safe and supportive group setting.  As you learn the value of intrinsic reward and begin to trust your instincts you will begin the journey to discover your authentic self.

North Star Adventures founder Nancy Zane has been inspiring individuals, students, and teams through adventure for over 25 years.

She has worked with sports teams, corporate groups, women’s groups, school personnel and families to create experiences that foster personal growth, teamwork, and open communication.
