Educational Programs

Build Teamwork and Increase Environmental Awareness

Great Learning is an adventurous experience – a lifelong transformation in how you think, feel, and commit yourself to action and interact with other people and our planet. Vertical Voyages’ can be a catalyst for great learning and growth by providing participants the challenge and opportunity to engage in a transformative outdoor experience. Tree climbing is a safe, active, meaningful, and unique outdoor experience that allows participants to build experiences in the canopy of a giant living organism, firmly secured to our planet Earth. Relevant interdisciplinary lessons in the context of adventure create a learning experience that goes far beyond the classroom and lasts far longer than a semester. Contact us about your educational goals, and we will create an experience in line with your school’s curriculum.
