Donations & Support

“Share the Adventure” is more than just a slogan for us. Since 1978, Wilderness Inquiry has opened the outdoors to share the adventure with hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life, including people with disabilities, underserved youth, low-income families and more.

We strive to be as inclusive as possible in everything we do, and we conduct programs serving thousands of people who would never have the opportunity to participate without your financial support. Click here to read about the impact your support has on individual lives.

  • Provides scholarships to those in financial need to participate on our trips in the United States. We also provide program supports in the form of adaptive equipment, personal care attendants, trip assistants, and sign language interpreters so that all may participate as peers.

  • Gives the opportunity for tens of thousands of urban youth to discover the environment in their own backyard through experiential education and place-based learning. This includes the Pathway to Employment program for careers in the outdoor industry.

  • Canoemobile — a roving fleet of Voyageur canoes and outdoor educators — engages students to improve school performance, cultivates a stewardship ethic, and creates pathways to pursue educational and career opportunities in the outdoors. This floating classroom has delivered hands-on experiential learning in more than 40 cities nationwide.

  • Shares outdoor experiences with low-income families, including families with a child or parent with a disability. Your support provides scholarships as well as adaptive equipment and additional assistance so that all family members may enjoy their time together.

  • Gives people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to learn new social and physical skills through healthy outdoor activities. These skills transfer to home life, the workplace, and the community in general, allowing people with intellectual disabilities to enjoy more enriched, integrated lives.
