The Expedition School
Everyone gets the urge to go out and live in the wild from time to time, and not just during tax season. Before you pack up your flint and compass, The Expedition School would like to give you a few lessons on traversing waters, hiking trails, and maintaining outdoor safety. It sponsors classes on paddleboarding, canoeing, and kayaking. The staff then leads expeditions to exciting destinations. Clients can sea kayak the fjords around Alaska and spot humpback whales on the open water, or surf crashing waves on the beaches of Costa Rica and hike up into the cloudforest near Arenal Volcano. While you're out in the wilds, The Expedition School's first-aid, water rescue, and CPR courses will mitigate any potential disasters, though medical support is also available to accompany groups on adventures.
Closer to home, The Expedition School is thoroughly committed to the community. They happily work with Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and proudly keep 100% of their profits invested in Austin and the neighborhood. They even partner with Keep Austin Beautiful to help take care of their hometown. Because the staff believes that everyone deserves the chance to play in the great outdoors while gaining practical skills and confidence, they also offer programs for the visually and hearing impaired.
