At NOLS, we believe that positive, ethical leaders change the world and that NOLS is the best place to achieve your leadership potential. On a NOLS course you will learn outdoor skills and develop an environmental ethic that will change the way you think about yourself and the world around you.
We know our graduates take their NOLS lessons home with them. Because leadership can be learned—and is learned on NOLS courses—graduates are equipped to turn that inspiration and responsibility into real change. NOLS graduates change the world because they are inspired. They can change the world because they’re informed. The 2014 winter-spring NOLS course catalog introduces you to a number of remarkable NOLS alumni who exemplify this. This catalog introduces you to the NOLS leadership and skills curricula and helps you imagine yourself learning these lessons in the most awe-inspiring classrooms in the world.
After reading the inspirational stories of our graduates and exploring countless photos throughout the catalog, find the perfect course for you this winter or spring. Dates, costs, ages, and brief descriptions of every winter/spring course are listed, as are course names for the rest of the year. Keep an eye out for the 2014 summer and fall course catalogs in the coming months. Join us!
