Get Ready for an Epic Adventure
in the Mountain West!
This course takes place either in Wyoming’s Bighorn or the Wind River Mountains. Both ranges are known for their fishing, wildflowers, and dramatic scenery. Designed for 14- and 15-year-olds, this course provides an excellent all-around introduction to mountain travel. You'll gain independence, scramble up peaks, catch trout, and make snow cones in July. Have 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!
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.
