Outdoor Learning and Adventure for K-12 Students

Want to experience outdoor learning and adventure for K-12 students? Wilderness Inquiry offers a range of outdoor learning and adventure opportunities designed for K-12 students of all backgrounds and abilities.

K-4 Adventures: These typically take place on land at a local park or natural area close to your school.

Grades 5-8 Adventures: These can include 1/2-day paddle experiences in our 24′ handmade Voyageur Canoes, overnights in a local park, or 2-6 day adventures in a National or State Park.

Middle School Adventures: We recognize the transition that takes place in middle school years, and we adjust our programs and activities accordingly. However Middle Schools Students enjoy the same program options–1/2 day, overnights and multi-day adventures.

High School Adventures: For older High Schools students, our adventures take on a little different tone. These 1/2 day, overnight and multi-day adventures tend to be a little more action-oriented, may include service components, and lesson plans are adjusted accordingly. High School Students may also take longer expeditions and study abroad opportunities.

Wilderness Inquiry works with many school districts, from Minneapolis and St. Paul to Washington, D.C., with our programs called “Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventures” and the “Canoemobile.” We also work with charter schools, private schools, enrichment and alternative learning programs. We can help you tailor your lesson plans to desired learner outcomes for students using nature as your classroom.
