Designed to stretch you physically, emotionally, and socially, the STEP experience is about learning through adventure! These experiences teach participants to work as group members- solving problems, sharing tasks and work assignments, and taking responsibility for each others’ safety. Integrated into the STEP program are times of discussion, discovery, and goal-setting. Through the generous support of the United Way, the Allegany County Youth Bureau, and individual supporters, this trip can be the catalyst that effects positive change in the youth of Allegany County. Your adventure awaits!
