What is Switchback Outdoor School?

Course registration is currently unavailable while we evaluate COVID-19 safety concerns. Join our mailing list if you'd like to be notified when registrations re-open. 

We believe that time in the outdoors is an essential component of a healthy and happy life. Our mission is to help our community access the outdoors in new and life changing ways. 

We provide educational and transformative experiences that range from an single hour to an entire week. These courses usually involve backpacking, hiking, camping, and biking and are each designed to provide participants with social and experiential learning. 

Our courses are designed to give our participants moments of awe and inspiration, a community to be a part of, and a chance to go to less populated places where one can disconnect from the routines of daily life. If you're joining for an overnight course, we recommend that you do not bring your cell phone to maximize the disconnection from your routine life... and maximize your connection to nature. 

Are you interested in bringing an experience to your workplace or community? Or maybe you'd like an adventure that is a little different from one of our current courses? We'd like nothing more than to help you Choose your own Adventure!
