Education Without Walls

Education Without Walls is an outdoor education program for adventurous students 13 through 18 years of age. Wilderness expeditions are 10 to 21 days long and include a variety of adventure activities, such as backpacking, rock climbing, surfing, mountaineering, camping and sea kayaking.

Wilderness, as a classroom, offers an exceptional learning environment — one where instructors foster curiosity, students apply critical thinking, and amazing memories are constructed and not soon forgotten. Instructors use a Core Curriculum to guide lesson planning and the facilitation of experiential education activities that focus on personal development, community building and the acquisition and mastery of technical outdoor skills. As a result, Education Without Walls students make close friends and learn incredible skills, all while having a blast on adventures of a lifetime.

Education Without Walls is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization established by The National Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education (NCOAE) in order to provide scholarships for motivated students in financial need.
