The Uncharted Trail Co. is a nonprofit organization founded & lead by James Boothe. In 2015, James and his wife, Kristina, navigated the tumultuous pregnancy, birth, and death of their son Ezekiel who was diagnosed at the first ultrasound with a rare & fatal genetic disorder, Trisomy 13.
The season after his son's death shook James to the core: re-shaping his faith, identity, and sense of purpose in life. During this time, James found himself looking for ways to outwardly process the pain, questions, and changes shaking his internal life. He wanted people he could trust. He wanted to feel purposeful and productive. He wanted to know he wasn't completely defeated.
Seeking out podcasts, books, counseling, and retreat centers, James found that there aren't many resources available specifically for men when it comes to grieving. Especially for the type of man who might not want to just talk through things with a counselor. Professional counseling is healthy and necessary, but James also wanted an avenue to physically work out his grieving... and he wanted the support of his closest friends.
The Uncharted Trail Co. is here to support the friends, family, and dads grieving the loss of a child. We help you navigate with a personal guide, resources to work through, and an intentional weekend away to help you get back to life.
The Uncharted Trail Adventures are designed to give you an opportunity to work out your grieving with your closest companions through a memorable, challenging, and fun experience. We know you have friends that you want by your side during this season. They want to support you, but maybe they just don't know how. We provide the training they need to learn how to love & support you in the ways that are best for you and your specific situation. We customize every experience and every training... and we do the logistical work behind the scenes so you can be free to fully embrace and conquer the challenge.
