Lasting Adventures strives to be America’s top provider of environmental education and wilderness stewardship by seeding youth, families, and underserved communities with profound, positive experiences in the great outdoors.

Since the summer of 1997, Lasting Adventures has shared the magic and wisdom of nature with over 5,000 youth, and provided an excess of 1,500 scholarships for underserved youth to explore the wonder of America’s national parks. Now more than ever, it is essential to introduce our youth to the powerful growth that can be found in nature, and we strive to provide these opportunities to those who might otherwise be unable to participate because of cost. We are always accepting scholarship applications, and all valid applications are considered for partial and/or full scholarships.

Lasting Adventures Scholarship Programs

Family or Individual Adult: There’s nothing more beneficial than spending time with your family in the outdoors, and we want all families to have the opportunity to experience our programs in nature. If your family would like to join us for a multi-day trip or day hike, but you need assistance, submit an application and we’ll reach out to you! These scholarships are also available to individual adults in need of financial aid to attend our programs.


Group: We aim to assist any group who faces difficulties enjoying our beautiful public lands. We partner with youth-benefiting organizations to provide group scholarships for those in need whose missions include exposing youth to the outdoors. Our historic partners have been groups like SOS Outreach and Boys & Girls Club, and we are eager to partner with more groups and organizations. We also seek to assist non-youth affiliated groups and organizations whose mission includes greater exposure to the natural world. If you belong to such a group or organization, and you’d like to partner with us to give your group a Lasting Adventure, please fill out the inquiry form below.


Participant Testimonials

Here are some comments from past clients in regards to our company, our programs and our scholarships:

“This program is absolutely amazing. Our 15 year old daughter had a blast and will never forget her experience. The staff were beyond amazing. We were blessed with a great scholarship for our daughter and will forever be grateful. We both had tears in our eyes because financially we were struggling but Megan so needed this experience for herself her confidence and self esteem” -TripAdvisor Review

“Several things really impressed me about Lasting Adventures, one being that it is a non-profit where the profits from private guiding go into their teen adventure program for disadvantaged youth scholarships.” -TripAdvisor Review
