Our Story


  •  All six of the leaders I have had have pushed me to work hard and do things I never thought were possible. I have learned not only outdoors skills at Overland, but also life skills: how to be inclusive and accepting, how to push the limits and how to work hard. 

    — Ellie Hodgson, Madison, Wisconsin
  •  This was a hugely defining time for Leo, and he arrived home very happy with a positive outlook on life. His leaders were fantastic! Thank you!
