Wyoming Backpacking Adventure - 3 Week

A Wyoming Backpacking Adventure is a true wilderness expedition designed for young people. For the entire 21 days of the course, your mode of travel will be your own two feet. You will be with students your own age, and your instructors will be skilled educators who value teaching young adults.

Gain independence and take responsibility for yourself and your companions. When you get back home, you will have the skills to enjoy outdoor activities on your own and the leadership qualities to help you advance in the classroom, on the playing fields, or anywhere you want to succeed.

Having fun, learning about the outdoors, rock climbing, fly-fishing, exploring beautiful places, and achieving goals you never thought possible—your summer adventure with NOLS is about to begin!

“The most rewarding thing about this course was being able to learn as much as I did about people skills and leadership as well as the sheer physical accomplishment involved.”
