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.

Service & Hiking New England

Two weeks of service and fun outdoors!

Service can be simple, powerful, and fun.

Picture yourself in a lush green field, patiently harvesting organic vegetables for a local food bank. Simple (can you pick beans?). Powerful (fresh food for a food bank!). Fun (outside, with your Overland leaders and your fellow group members — chatting, laughing, and telling stories). How about rebuilding a trail? Also simple, powerful, and fun. For a change of pace, we’ll also hike, raft, and camp in the Berkshires. Service can be a gift. A gift to those you serve, a gift to yourself. Spending two weeks in the summer in a beautiful place with like-minded peers and two terrific Overland leaders is an ideal way to look beyond yourself and to give to others. And in the process, to get so much in return!

"The service was really rewarding and I enjoyed talking to my new friends on the hikes. Getting to the top of all the trails was the best!"

"Our daughter came home saying she had a life-changing experience that she could never replicate. She got a lot out of the service they did, and also truly enjoyed all of the camping and hiking! It was an amazing experience -- we are so happy for her! "
