Matthew Peters

Explore! Advisor

Matt began volunteering at LBE in 2012 and joined our staff full time in May 2014. Matt has extensive wilderness knowledge and a lot of passion to reach the youth of Winnipeg’s inner city. This made him a natural fit to begin our newest outdoor wilderness adventure program called Explore!. In the fall of 2018, Matt left LBE to start Wilderland Adventure Company; a company created to build and empower local outdoor leaders. Matt and his wife Cheryl (former Assistant Manager of LBE) have invested in the lives of many of LBE’s children and teens and desire to continue this relationship of mentoring and building leaders in the Lord. We are grateful that Matt continues to be the key advisor in LBE’s Explore! program and for Chery’s and their daughter Eleah’s active role in building and maintaining relationships with our children, teens and families.
