Introducing the Adventure Semester

Build a Life of Freedom, Adventure, and Meaningful Work

Adventure Semester is our newest, longest, and most ambitious program. Think of it as an intensive leadership training with all the fun, adventure, and community of our international trips and writing retreats.

We're putting everything on hold to run the Adventure Semester (there will be no writing retreat or international trips in 2015). That's how excited we are for it!
April 2015 update: The program is now fully enrolled—wow, that was fast!

Check it Out!

We run life-changing programs for self-directed teens.

Previous Students Say:

  • Unschool Adventures changed my life for the better. I feel like I've grown as a human being, and my standards for fun and happiness have sky rocketed. The friends that I've made here are THE coolest, most hilarious, and most lovable people I have ever met.

    Erik B. (Nepal 2014)

  • This trip completely changed my life! As a traditional high-schooler, being in such a close-knit group with people of completely different learning backgrounds, I have opened my eyes to so many academic and career options for my future.

    Julia S. (Argentina 2012)

  • I loved the Writing Retreat! The joy of waking up and walking sleepily up the stairs to a room filled with the smell of bagels and Nutella, packed full of people rocking out to music, writing, typing, talking, clanking away on typewriters—I can't think of what wasn't fun.

    Brooke B. (Writing Retreat 2011)

  • I can’t imagine going on a better trip, or with better people. Exceeded my high expectations.
