EXPERIENCE OVERLAND from our parents’ perspective

“Heidi felt supported by caring leaders on her first sleep away experience…
The activities were appropriately challenging and sufficiently varied for a first time student. Heidi can’t stop talking about her trip and already has plans to visit one of the friends she made.

“This was Adam’s third trip and his best one yet!
What made this experience the best were the leaders. Adam would not stop talking about them and said that he would love to do the Alpine Challenge with them. I absolutely love seeing the growth in my child after every trip. Overland is a phenomenal summer experience!
