“I wanted to thank you for the outstanding programs that you have provided for our students.  I really appreciate you tailoring the activities to meet the needs of our students.  Program leaders are excellent and I am always confident that students will be both challenged safe.”

– Kay Heintzelman, Upper School Curriculum Coordinator, The Kingsbury DS-HS

The EDGE offers educators an opportunity to expand classroom learning through FUN experiential activities conducted in an outdoor classroom setting. Staff facilitators assist teams of 8 – 15 students in the learning process through the combined use of portable elements as well as low and high ropes challenge course activities.

Our programs allow both individuals and the team to take ownership and be more conscious of the results/consequences of their own actions. 

Visit our EDGE Earth program page and make the most out of your school field trip by combining student development, with experiential learning and environmental education!

The EDGE follows the philosophy of “Challenge by Choice” in all of our outdoor programs.

Our programs support the Virginia Standards of Learning.
