Price above reflects semester-long enrollment

Los Angeles boasts some of the most beautiful mountain ranges, biodiversity, and urban parks in the world – and we’re ready to get your students out there in a fun and safe way! We’ll explore age-appropriate hikes with a mix of sensory awareness games, natural history journaling, and teamwork activities along the way. 

Our combination of experienced and friendly staff, spectacular outdoor classrooms, community building techniques, and long-term mentorship will provide your child with connections to nature, their peers, and themselves. 

These adventures bring what students are learning in the classroom into an exciting real-world context, and give them the depth of experience you always wanted for them. They may even discover a new subject or passion!
