Our Story


  •  We originally chose Overland based on recommendations of friends who said it was the best run and best quality program of its type. We returned because Gideon had an excellent experience his first summer.

  •  Originally we chose Overland because of the program description, recommendations from friends and the competence/caring/general wonderfulness of the people who answered my questions on the phone. We continue to sign up for Overland trips because they are so obviously good for Lauren.
