Experience the coolest summer adventure! You will see and explore Alaska like a native. This is a small group adventure limited to 25 students. Activities include sea kayaking, glacier climbing, whale watching, hiking in the temperate rainforest, cultural interaction with the Kenaitze Tribe and participating in local conservation projects. Educationally our focus will be on the ecology of the Kenai Fjords including the human dimensions of resource management and the effects of climate change on the region for all living things.

Your life-changing adventure is carbon neutral and helps make a positive difference for the environment through your tuition dollars and service time. One week of adventure will help you discover a new place and learn about yourself along the way. Students who will be at least a junior in high school by the time of the program may earn college credit through the University of Wisconsin.
