Enrollment for 2021 is booming!
The response this year has been gratifying—now more than ever, families appreciate how the Overland experience offers young people the chance to explore the world in a small group with terrific leadership. A summer outdoors exploring with new friends—that sounds just about perfect!
Frequently Asked Questions
How do we apply?
Applying is simple, and it takes just a few minutes… and all deposits are fully refundable until May 15, 2021. Apply online using a credit card for the $795 deposit (your card will not be charged until we confirm a spot for you). Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are submitted (and we do not hold spots over the phone).
Do any 2021 trips have limited availability?
Yes. Many 2021 trips have limited availability (and some are full).
What happens if my first choice is not available?
Don’t worry — we’ll work hard to find a great trip for you this summer… just be flexible: all of our trips offer fun, friends, challenge, and adventure!
How do you put together the groups? Do most students come on their own or with a friend?
Our groups are limited to twelve students — we pay attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. To create a welcoming environment for all students, we limit friend pairs in each group.
I was signed up for a trip in 2020 and chose to apply my payment to 2021. Do I have to send in another application?
No, but you must indicate to us which trip (and dates) you want in 2021. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (413.458.9672) to request a trip for next summer.
If I was a senior in high school last year, can I do a trip in 2021?
Yes. Please choose any trip open to students who will complete 12th grade in 2021.
Is the Overland office open?
Yes. Please call 413.458.9672 or email. We’re open Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 4:30 EST.
