The Wilderness Classroom started with a simple idea: to improve students' core academic skills and appreciation for the environment by introducing elementary and middle school students to the wonders of exploration and wilderness travel.
Fifteen years later, the Wilderness Classroom reaches over 2,600 teachers and 85,000 students each year.
We work to instill a lifelong appreciation of the natural world while improving basic skills like reading, critical thinking, and communication by highlighting the joy of discovery.
Because of the generous support we recieve from a growing network of foundations, corporate sponsors, private donors, and volunteers, our educational programming is free for all classrooms to use.
Please help reach our goal of working with over 100,000 students in 2015 by make a tax deductable donation today.
