The Outdoor Education Office at Earlham College helps promote the adventuresome spirit through safe, high quality experiential and outdoor education programs. By fostering the development of technical and interpersonal skills, students gain confidence through increasing competence. Our programs aim ultimately to develop strong leaders who can flexibly apply their skills and knowledge to a variety of situations.
A unique aspect of the program is the expeditionary-based learning programs and courses. Leadership positions on month-long courses in Utah and Canada (August Wilderness and May Terms), and shorter field courses provide students with opportunities for in-depth, intensive study combined with real, hands-on teaching and learning.
