What is Tree of Life Christian Wilderness Expeditions?

Hiking along rivers

Tree of Life Christian Wilderness Expeditions (TLCWE) is a licensed outdoor youth program in the state of Oregon owned and operated by Christians. TLCWE is aimed at families dealing with defiance, alcohol and drug use and experimentation, entitlement, issues of faith, attention disorders, behavioral issues, and other destructive family issues.

Why Should You Choose TLCWE?

We offer not only a Christian perspective, but also the experience of larger, high dollar companies (in fact, many of us have worked for them). We are a seasoned and dedicated team, have smaller more intimate groups, and offer a highly professional experience, one you will be glad to support. We are passionate about this work! This is not just "therapy"... We offer the TRUTH!


What TLCWE Offers

TLCWE offers assessments of individual needs, intervention plans, follow up support services, retreat, and wildreness guide services for one-day, weekend, or up to 21-to-60 day wilderness expeditions.

These expeditions are offered to church groups, schools, business groups, families, or custom individual adventures.
