A “Strong to be Helpful” Rite of Passage.
Do you have what it takes?
Challenge | Adventure | Camping | Camaraderie
Challenge yourself and test your real world preparedness at this 3-day MovNat Immersion experience with Team Instructors Danny Clark and Kellen Milad.
We believe Natural Movement is more than a fitness practice. It’s a way of life. We also believe it’s the best way to strengthen you mentally and physically, that the best growth happens outside of your comfort zone, and that Nature is one of our greatest teachers.
So, if you love a challenge and want to test your Natural Movement abilities, please join us at this special event. Find out what you’re really capable of, explore the limits of your potential, and make memories in the mountains at this one-of-a-kind experience designed to test your mental and physical endurance through Natural Movement.
IMPORTANT: The first 10 participants to register for this event will receive $200 off. These initial spots disappeared within a few days of being announced last year. So, act quickly!
“A highly visceral and concretely human experience, facilitated by caring people and a landscape…I am grateful to have lived all this.” -Sébastien Raud, France (2018 Immersion Graduate)
Who Is This Event For?
This event is NOT for everyone.
This Immersion event is only open to MovNat Event Alumni (i.e., certification, workshop, or retreat alumni). So, if you are new to MovNat, please attend one of our educational events prior to signing up for this challenge.
That said, you don’t need elite level movement skills, an athletic background, or high fitness levels to participate in this event. However, you should be in good health, reasonably fit, and have some Natural Movement experience. This event is NOT for beginners, and you should be prepared to take on intense challenges that may push you beyond your perceived limits.
We highly recommend obtaining sign-off from your doctor certifying that you are fit enough to engage in three days of strenuous exercise.
All participants must be at least 18 years of age and must sign the liability waiver.
Am I fit enough for this event?
At the minimum, we recommend you can easily exceed the Beginner Level Performance Benchmarks. However, you’ll be better prepared if you can meet the Intermediate Level Performance Benchmarks, and we recommend that all hopeful participants strive for this level.
Remember, you are capable of so much more than you think, especially when you work with a team of people who believe the same thing.
Note: We will make every effort to ensure a safe experience for everyone. However, this event will be inherently more risky than other MovNat events. So, we reserve the right to defer or deny participation to any person, at any time, for any reason, at our sole discretion (e.g. if the Instructors deem the event or certain activities unsafe for certain individuals).
3 days that will change your life
A detailed itinerary will not be provided for this event. So, prepare for the unexpected. But generally speaking, the first two days will involve an Immersion into the practice of the skills to be tested, along with some progressively more difficult mini-challenges that will lead up to the final challenge on Day 3 – a course through several miles of terrain with obstacles and partner challenges. So, this will definitely be a challenge, but you won’t be getting your butt kicked the entire weekend!

What Our Students Want You To Know
“I am very grateful to have experienced this. If you want to REALLY get to know yourself mentally and physically, you have to try this, at least once. If you give your very best, you will feel more confident, strong and capable than at any other time in your life. It is a transformational growth experience. This event was a big highlight in my adult life. THANK YOU for an incredible and unforgettable event.” -George Karaminas, Montreal, Canada
“I might have been a little nervous about being an over 50 female and if I would be able to handle it…I did not feel that I was pressured to perform above what I could handle, challenged yes, but pressured no. It put a spark in me to challenge myself more and come back stronger next year!” -Sherry Johnson, IA
“This was an amazing experience which challenged me physically and mentally. It helped to clear my mind of the many things in our everyday lives which can inundate us with stress. It was a great time to reflect and grow personally and spiritually for me. It helped me to see the places in my life which I could improve upon to have greater balance.” -Chi Bang, Boston, MA
“Given the quality of the food and on-site amenities, and the richness of the experience itself, I can say with confidence that it was worth every penny and then some. If you want to prove to yourself that you can face a challenge and push your limits physically and mentally, this is it! Thank you very much! This was exactly the kind of thing that got me interested in MovNat to begin with and lived up to all my expectations. Let’s do it again soon!” -Ryn Midura, Boston, MA

More Feedback From Our Students
The final day immersion was outstanding. I loved the mystery around the event, the immersion in nature and the various challenges…I am so grateful to all of you for this experience. The location was spectacular, the food was amazing and the coaching, exceptional…I feel very inspired to take my training to the next level. -David Barclay, Denver, CO
“I have never felt as empowered to move forward in new creative ways as I do now…I had an excellent experience, it really still feels like the glow after a well fought for rites of passage. I feel very validated in my bones to keep moving forward.” -Jonathan Frame, NH
“The course was so delightful… I have never been happier. The people who came – MovNat in general, just really attracts the nicest people. I have found that people were so willing to help, and the camaraderie in being a part of the community. I literally wouldn’t have it any other way. So, thank you guys for hosting such a wonderful adventure. I literally needed something like this… and I would like to encourage women to challenge yourself! I did it! I’m five foot tall…and I’m over 50.” -Julie Beck, CA
I like being challenged and the fast pace “keep up” structure felt good because I had to dig deep and convince myself that I can do this jump. I’m afraid of heights so the jumping part of the challenge was very rewarding and also I can do a couple swing ups when before I couldn’t.” – Harry Su, NH
