We facilitate professional wilderness adventure programs which challenge participants outside of their comfort zones. Overcoming fears is a vital part of our ministry.
It is the expectation that all UMA staff and volunteers adhere to the strictest safety standards and we seek to instill those standards within our youth by teaching risk-management while on our adventure trips.
UMA recognizes the value of intentionally living within the community we serve. This provides a consistent and personal involvement with our youth and their families, thereby demonstrating a Christ-centered model for living.
We encourage corporate and individual growth in Christ. This takes place through personal accountability and relationships as well as group fellowship with the UMA staff.
We seek to empower our youth as they grow up into young adults. This is a newer initiative, we seek to do this by putting them in leadership roles and through service trips (mission trips).
UMA exemplifies Christ-like servanthood to all youth regardless of race, color, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. And we seek to instill the same values in our youth.
Our youth are responsible for their gear on our adventure trips. We also teach good stewardship by practicing Leave No Trace principles.
