College Student Adventures

Looking for creative adventures or field trip ideas for your college or university? Wilderness Inquiry works with college students of all backgrounds and abilities to provide inclusive outdoor recreation and experiential education programs. We conduct hundreds of multi-day adventure trips and field trip activities for schools throughout the United States and abroad, including:

We often work with faculty members to create great educational trips for students. Examples range from day trips near campus to sea kayaking in the Apostle Islands to study abroad tours in Tanzania, Costa Rica or New Zealand. Choose from an existing destination, or design your own student experience.

Our staff are highly skilled outdoor professionals who not only can help plan and support a trip, but many are also educators and professors themselves. Greg Lais, our Executive Director, teaches Outdoor Leadership for the University of Minnesota.

Wilderness Inquiry adventures help students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities develop confidence, understanding of the environment and appreciation for people from diverse cultures.
