Far more than simply a summer experience, Overland is a life experience with value and resonance that extends beyond the boundaries of a single summer. In everything we do, we seek to inspire our students to see how beautiful and exciting, how full of promise the world is.

Our Values

Whenever a road stretches before me, whenever a mountain must be climbed or a desert crossed, I will have the strength and determination to reach that goal.
— Max Arnell
Overland teaches reverence, respect and appreciation for the natural world. Jane considers sunrises and sunsets, the stars, beaches and mountains and forests and plains, even the wind, in a completely different sense than she did before her Overland summers.
— Helen Hamel
In a pivotal stage of my life Overland was there to teach me how to become a leader.
— Corey Schwitz
