Far more than simply a summer adventure trip for teens, Overland is a life experience with value and resonance that extends far 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. Each of our summer adventure trips offers carefully crafted itineraries, small groups and capable, caring leaders. Our adventures are many: hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, climbing and more. And our destinations include some of the world’s most beautiful mountains, coastlines and countrysides. But Overland is more than exciting activities, more than great destinations. Overland is a chance to step out into the world on your own, while sharing in the friendships and fun of a small group with terrific leadership.
In a pivotal stage of my life Overland was there to teach me how to become a leader.— Corey Schwitz
We felt Jackson would benefit from an experience that promoted independence. We wanted him with good kids and inspiring leaders so he could grow.— Margaret Cooper
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
