National Outdoor Leadership School

NOLS, the premier teacher of outdoor skills and leadership, offers courses from 10 days to a full school year in the world's most spectacular wilderness classrooms. <br /><br />At NOLS, we take people on real wilderness expeditions in remote areas. These aren't guided tours: You won't be sitting in a bus while the scenery is described to you over an intercom. You'll be living in the backcountry, seeing it up close and in person. <br /><br />The mission of the National Outdoor Leadership School is to be the leading source and teacher of wilderness skills and leadership that serve people and the environment.
