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.

Northwest Expedition

Explore the stunning Pacific Northwest!

An Epic Landscape!

Mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers, and bays: at every turn, the landscape delights and surprises you. We’ll explore this magical place by foot and kayak. You’ll hike on the Olympic Peninsula and in Olympic National Park, and backpack through the Cascades. You’ll kayak the San Juan Islands, spotting wildlife in the water and on foggy beaches. Along the way, you’ll have one another. A small group, no more than twelve students, and two caring, capable leaders: what more could you want?
