The wilderness provides the ideal setting for this unique education. With classes from 10 days to a full academic year, we attract highly motivated students who want to learn how to lead. Our hands-on, learn-by-doing approach means that our graduates get the skills they need to be competent, responsible wilderness travelers long after their course is over.
