Who we are and what we do:

The Outdoor Adventures by Boojum for Experiential Education fosters positive peer relationships, self-confidence and environmental stewardship by connecting individuals with nature and each other through hands-on learning experiences.

We offer custom-designed programs – camping, rock climbing, high-ropes courses, eco activities and other fun yet challenging pursuits – among great rivers, expansive deserts, remote beaches and mountain peaks. Our nonprofit is accredited by the Association for Experiential Education, which ensures the highest level of quality and safety.

In such spectacular destinations as Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Joshua Tree National Parks, Point Reyes National Seashore, the Colorado River, Channel Islands National Park, and the Sierra Nevada mountains, Boojum provides people with adventures that broaden their horizons figuratively and literally.

Founded in 1975, the Institute has benefited more than 85,000 people in its role as an educational partner and established an enduring reputation for value, integrity and fun. Its Course Directors are a rare, inspired breed – both highly trained as outdoor educators and committed to making sure kids LIVE while they learn.

Even participants who struggle in a traditional classroom environment frequently find Boojum’s brand of education deeply enjoyable, personally rewarding and indelibly memorable.

The environmental education component of Boojum programs explores natural history through hands-on investigation, allowing the participant to develop a relationship with the environment and providing insight into responsible environmental behavior and the role humans play in the natural world. The Institute is dedicated to personal and organizational development through unlocking potential, promoting self-discovery and inspiring growth.
