SUPERB LEADERSHIP, HIGH STANDARDS, & ROCK-SOLID VALUES
For four decades, families have trusted Overland to create nurturing environments where their children thrive.
Carefully crafted trips since 1984
Overland’s trips take our students on a journey of growth and discovery. Focused on
safety, and free of screens, Overland is wholesome, adventurous, and fun.
With a wide range of fun outdoor activities, Berkshire Adventure is a great introductory hiking trip for our youngest students.
Grades 4 - 6
Explore Massachusetts’ Berkshire Hills, Vermont’s Green Mountains, New Hampshire’s White Mountains, and Maine’s famous coast.
Grades 6 - 9
Over two weeks, we’ll backpack, raft, and summit a 14er. Standing at over 14,000 feet, we’ll look back on accomplishments, laughter and smiles.
Grades 9 - 11
Hike the best of the Alps—across the Bernese Oberland, below the Matterhorn, through deep green valleys and over Alpine passes.
Grades 10 - 12
There’s a reason families return to Overland year after year: at every level, our trips
offer thoughtful planning, appropriate challenges, and supportive groups.
Meet Our Leaders
Capable and caring, our leaders focus on creating supportive and wholesome groups.
The Best of the Best
Our talented leaders have one goal: the success of each of their students. This, perhaps more than anything else, has made the difference for us as a summer adventure camp and for the forty thousand students who have joined us.
Far More Than Just A Summer Experience
The Overland story is best told by our families, students, and leaders.View all Student stories ›
“Words cannot describe the intimate dynamic of an Overland trip…
something I crave every day I am not on a trip or visiting my Overland friends. At Overland, everyone is important and everything that we do is as a team. Such a supportive and collaborative environment is hard to find anywhere else. I am so grateful for the long-lasting connections that I made on my trips!”Ali
Beyond the bounds of single summer
Families witness the growth born out of an independent experience and age-appropriate challenges.View all Parent stories ›
“In sending our kids to Overland, our goal was for them to become adventurous, acquire independence, confidence and leadership.
We also wanted them to be exposed to different cultures and experiences which would stretch them beyond their comfort zone.”

“I believe leadership is being able to love and care for all of the team members…
I’ve learned that leadership does not only rest on the “leader.” In a team, we all can and should lead. This summer, I’ll strive to empower and encourage ownership in each and every team member over our summer adventure!”
