Team Jesse Sponsors Expedition for Children and Siblings of the Fallen

From June 23 – 30, 2016, Team Jesse sponsored a Teen Expedition in the Delaware Water Gap Region. Hosted by Travis Manion Foundation, this Expedition was attended by children and siblings, ages 15-18, of fallen military service members. The outdoor experience included rock climbing, map and compass navigation, physical challenges, team leadership skill development and a service component to benefit the local community and serve in honor of the fallen.

The one-week course was a unique adventure specifically designed for teens coping with the death of a loved one. Teens camped and hiked along portions of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
