Crystalaire Adventures has been operating in Northern Michigan since 1920. We guide wilderness expeditions designed to instill leadership, collaboration, risk management skills, and a thoughtful land ethic.
We have a different approach than most trips programs: We give participants full agency over their experience, meaning they choose where to go, when to stop and everything in between. These real-life decisions create opportunities for participants to learn and hone their leadership skills.
In addition to our slate of summer programs we offer custom trips for families, groups, schools and organizations, as well as off season programming in the Ann Arbor area. Email for more information.
