A Frontier Wilderness Learning Experience

We design and lead wilderness and leadership educational programs. Our educational programs work with camps, high schools, universities and other organizations providing logistics and risk management oversight for the institution's established program, and/or offering our own outdoor and leadership curriculum. 

Our outdoor and leadership curriculum is based on a frontier wilderness experience that explores topics such as geology, atmospheric sciences, natural history, and conservation biology. Each area of focus includes leadership, cultural exchange, and personal and group development and reflection.
