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.

"My time spent with Overland in Alaska was truly one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of my life thus far; I will cherish our friendship and shared memories forever. There was something magical about hiking above treeline for the first time -- that's where I felt Alaska's beauty shone the most. It was a completely different experience in terms of the environment than any hiking I'd ever done. "

"Why Overland? To get kids out of their comfort zones; to see some of our beautiful worlds, which might be invisible otherwise; to be off the grid; to be in the wilderness, not just near it. My child came back with more awe and respect and love for the wild. "
