Travels in the West

Take a Tour:

Backpack      Coast Trip     Klamath Basin    Day Trips

We love the West and we want our students, many of whom hail from places like Pennsylvania and Michigan, to see what we love. So after the first segment we divide into four or five groups and take off backpacking into a few spectacular mountain wilderness areas: California’s High Sierra or Trinity Alps, Oregon’s Three Sisters Wilderness in the Cascades or the Wallowas in the Snake River country. No previous backpacking experience is necessary. We offer a choice of trips that range from relaxing to physically challenging.

Backpacking - The Oregon Extension

Oregon Coast - Oregon Extension tripIn October, we enjoy a long weekend on the rocky Oregon coast. Students can relax and read on the beach, explore the marine life in the tidal pools, and take a dip in the Pacific ocean.

In November, we spend several days exploring the streets of a West Coast city, either San Francisco or Portland, staying overnight in youth hostels.
