Nature | Relationships | Spirit

“Northwest Passage offers what I value as catalysts for Acceptance and Hope as Exercise and Recreation serve as outlets during our Weekend programming. There’s an inner peace with experiences of Spirit in natural settings of Nature, among people, and inner reflection on life and living in Service to others. Any way I can share these joys through Relationships with our kids at Northwest Passage is an everyday gift!”
