IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MARLBORO COLLEGE (207) 322-2973 bus@marlboro.edu

We Travel, We Learn, We Explore

Our custom retrofitted bus

is our home as we travel throughout our exciting regions.

Our small group size

allows us to support diverse learning styles and empower students to learn in their own ways.

Our exploration of regional natural history

begins by living outdoors immersed in the environment every day and camping outdoors every night.

Our experiences with communication skills,

group facilitation, and conflict resolution are made real by the need to share a small common space, make group decisions for the learning community, and to collaboratively prepare meals

Our immersion in regional culture

comes alive through our many visits with local people who call the region home.

Our wilderness travel

provides time away from the distractions of phones, computers, highways, traffic lights and all the rest allows us a chance to reflect deeply on what we’re learning and what we will explore next.
