Base Camp Campaign Enters the Homestretch
By Pip Coe

Completed in 2001, NOLS’ International Headquarters in Lander, Wyoming supports NOLS operations worldwide.

With only a month and a half left of the five-year International Base Camp Initiative, our largest capital campaign ever, NOLS is struck by the generosity of our friends. By giving to this campaign, you are giving to the community, quality and scope of NOLS that touches thousands of lives each year. Please help us close the remaining gap in donations in order to bring our campaign to a successful end.

To give to the NOLS International Base Camp Initiative contact our Development Office at (800) 332-4280. Or visit us at and indicate specifically that the donation be used towards the NOLS Base Camp.

“We have our new headquarters housing the in-town staff under one roof and the Noble sitting on Main Street. We have made a statement and are strong in the community. We care about the past and we will make a difference in the future.”
— Carolyn Rohlen, Member, Board of Trustees

“NOLS courses are world class, and I believe where the experience begins and ends matters. Students and instructors deserve a place for starting and finishing their expeditions that reflect the mission, the quality, and the lessons of the course.”
— Daryl Burtnett, Former NOLS Instructor

“In our busy, stressful lives, NOLS provides perspective and life lessons that are invaluable. Helping to support the campaign is one small way I can support NOLS in the continuation of its development as a strong, vibrant institution that has an impact far beyond the boundaries of a normal school.”
— David Forster, NOLS Grad
