Outdoor Hostel Adventure (OHA) programs depend on the support of donors to continue extending its critical education programs to all participants, particularly groups who would otherwise not be able to participate.

Our programs are unique in serving schools, adult and youth groups, and hostel guests with the fewest resources and the most limited opportunities to experience the world outside of their immediate neighborhoods. Most of these participants are able to experience the OHA program because of our low program fees and scholarship support.

Our donors help to ensure that these programs remain affordable for everyone, and provide additional scholarship assistance to more than 70 percent of underserved youth.  

“The Outdoor Hostel Adventure program is the most affordable program around. I'm grateful for the scholarship that you gave our class, especially because our school has so little money for field trips this year, and the kids can't afford to pay their own way.”
--4th grade teacher, John Muir Elementary School
