Wyoming Backpacking Adventure

A true wilderness expedition designed for young people. You'll join a group of peers your own age, gain independence, and take responsibility for yourself and your coursemates. 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!
