LANDER, Wyo.--On Sunday July 18, Outside Magazine and the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) highlighted the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) as the nation’s #1 adventure camp.  The program, “Outside Magazine’s Ultimate Top 10 Adventure Camps,” was created as a follow-up to the magazine’s April 2004 article entitled “The Thrill of the Skill,” which recognized NOLS Wind River Wilderness courses and applauded the school’s Leave No Trace ethics.

NOLS was listed above other schools and adventure camps based on its high standards in leadership training and outdoor education.  “NOLS is the perfect antidote for the fast food, SUV, cell phone, remote control nation,” says Outside Magazine’s Photography Editor Rob Haggart.

“Outside Magazine is a leading publication for the outdoor industry.  NOLS is honored that Outside has recognized us as number one in wilderness skills education. This is great tribute to our staff and strong recognition of our highly accomplished graduates,” says NOLS Executive Director John Gans.

A private non-profit school founded in 1965, NOLS operates wilderness field expeditions on four continents and boasts over 75,000 alumni worldwide. The school runs 10-day to semester-length courses for people aged 14 to over 70 in the Rocky Mountains, Pacific Northwest, Southwest, Alaska, Western Canada, Mexico, Patagonia (Chile), India, Australia, and New Zealand. College credit and scholarships are available.
