Alumni Reunions

It doesn’t matter where or when you took your course: NOLS grads have a shared appreciation for the wilderness and the camaraderie that comes with spending time there. Come to a NOLS reunion to meet other grads in your community.

“We paddled downstream, our cheerful energy giving us the strength to make it to camp. It was times like that one that reminded and continue to remind me of how much a group of determined, positive people can achieve. At times it may seem like something is impossible or too hard, but when you’re surrounded by people who support and believe in you, anything’s possible and everything’s alright.”
