The World is Our Classroom

The World is Our Classroom:
How one family used nature and travel to shape an extraordinary education 

Cindy’s story begins in the Rocky Mountain wilderness: two parents leading their children 3,100 miles on the backs of llamas. The journey illustrated to Cindy and her husband what experiential education can do. Inspired by this adventure, they orchestrated learning opportunities around the world, as well as in their own backyard.

Before The Trail

"This is when it hit me: how much we were teaching our children just by placing
the world of nature in their path."
