Living Classrooms Project

These tours are "partially funded by our standard tourism activities" specifically to “match curriculum for schools “ and “provide youth or rehabilitation activities for non-profit entities" that otherwise would not be able to afford to match their needs in the outdoors.

Matching School Curriculum: 4-4.5 Hours

Costs Is By Daily Participants Or Average Over Several Days.

Our larger schools are bringing 5 classes over 5 days averaging 30 students for each class.

Prices are funded through our general tourism activities and are generally very low, so we do not list them online: Call for pricing.

 


We can also network with other local outdoor activity and accommodation providers for adventure getaways.
