We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Hometown: Springfield, Missouri
College: Whitman College

As an Overland student, I went on three bike trips — Paris to the Sea, Canadian Rockies and Montana and the American Challenge; through these trips, I fell in love with camping and bike touring.

Originally from Springfield, Missouri, I am a sophomore at Whitman College, where I plan to major in environmental humanities and film production. I received the Sustainable Living Certificate for my efforts to reduce my carbon footprint and make the environment a healthier place. Also, I received a music talent scholarship at Whitman, which allows me to take piano lessons and collaborate with other music students. During my first year of college, I took an outdoor leadership class through Whitman’s outdoor program. We studied different aspects of leadership, tolerance for adversity and a variety of survival skills. At the end of the class, we traveled to Hawaii where we put our knowledge to the test by back-country camping, hiking and teaching technical leadership classes. I thrive in environments that require outdoor leadership knowledge because I love working to maintain positive attitudes in a group while we encounter inevitable challenges.

In 2019, I was on Support Staff. The most rewarding part of my summer was my time spent with the Operations Team, working on new projects everyday to ensure the success of Overland groups across the country and world.
