Kaf – (cough) – is an old mystical Hebrew word meaning the power to actualize potential.
The Hebrew legend goes that KAF is a sacred mythological mountain that surrounds the world and bounds the horizon. This mountain rests upon the emerald stone of sakhrat, which emanates miraculous power; together, their reflection makes the sky blue.
KAF Adventures is dedicated to self-discovery, wilderness skill education and leadership development through outdoor recreation, adventure travel, and wilderness exploration. We always strive to maintain an awareness of our impact on the natural environment and of different cultures we visit.
How we began: KAF Adventures arose out of the outdoor passions of owner and operator, Mick Pearson. Mick began studying outdoor recreation in 1997, and felt the value of experiential education while spending time with others in wild places. These experiences and interactions impacted his life, created a place for self-discovery, and gave him an appreciation for the natural world. Thus KAF Adventures was born out of Mick’s experiences and has shared a parallel process with Mick’s journeys.
What makes KAF, KAF? You, me and the places we go together! KAF is all about community. Students do not just zoom in and out of our classes; they become members of the KAF community. Though our adventures in nature, our community members form unique bonds with each other that continue to grow once back in the city.
The 3 segments of KAF: Outdoor Exploration, Adventure Travel, and Team Development. Within each segment you will find a place to learn, experience and reflect upon your daily existence. It’s all about experiencing and gaining a new perspective!
Outdoor Recreation and Adventure Travel creates the space for this journey. The KAF Community is a tool to create connections, reflect upon your experiences, and actualize the change you want to see in the world.
KAF for you: KAF Adventures offers customized outdoor travel experiences. We have experience with all outdoor activities, have travel experience on all seven continents, and have been working with groups for over 14 years. If you do not see a class or experience you are looking for, need travel advice, or would like to create a unique team building experience, please don’t hesitate to call us today.
“It is you who embarks on a journey; emotional, spiritual, and physical in which lies your connection to the earth and its people.” – Mick Pearson 2006
