Service | Exercise | Recreation

“These Passageway elements take an important role in my life inside and outside Northwest Passage. Actively practicing Passageway Exercise has helped me maintain positive mental health. I enjoy spending time keeping my body active at a local weight room, hiking state park trails, and swimming at various lakes in the area. Passageway Service has been a helpful tool for me to create and build relationships with others. Building these relationships has increased my knowledge of what the world has to offer as opportunities continually arise. Passageway Recreation is important to me because it defines what I enjoy and hold passions for. Various recreational activities I participate in include metal detecting, finding new music to listen to, and rock collecting.”
