OUR PROGRAM IS UNIQUE IN CALIFORNIA! We are a small, upstart company that managed to jump into the (relatively…) big league of outdoor education. We believe we can make a difference, make a living, and be happy all at the same time.

OUR CORNER OF THE COUNTRY IS PRETTY DARN COOL! We are based in Big Bear, the coolest mountain town in Southern California; no other outdoor ed center is based here. From mountains to deserts to beaches, with a little small-town atmosphere close by and a lot of big-city amenities within a couple of hours…pretty nice…
