our core values

education | stewardship | community | family

  • education

We believe that ones ability to connect with ones environment starts with an understanding of it. Our courses rely heavily upon experiential education, allowing the students the ability to learn from a hands-on approach.

  • Stewardship

We implement Leave No Trace practices into all of our programs, locally and abroad. We believe that it is important to instill a love and respect for our shared outdoor spaces so everyone can enjoy it.

  • Community

Our programs were designed to level the playing field for everyone that would like to experience the outdoors, thereby building a community around a shared loved for the outdoors.

  • Family

The healthiest of habits only stick when you have support, that is why we offer outdoor opportunities for the entire family and encourage everyone to join us anytime in any of our programs.
