Everyone should have the opportunity for education & adventure.

Over the years many of our generous guests have contributed to our scholarship fund when signing up for a trip or class. During the 2020 season we had an AMAZING amount of support, with over $500 coming from the Covid-19 relief fund started by our local business association, and $633 from guest donations. Combined with past donations we currently have $2,353.51 in assistance available.

We want to see YOU out on an ED-venture with us soon! Individuals and groups are welcome to apply.
