Our mission is to cultivate the next generation of environmental leaders though transformative summer experiences.


Sustainable Learning creates unique learning experiences designed to prepare today’s high school students to become tomorrow’s environmental leaders. Our programs combine environmental education in remarkable places with leadership development. We operate safe, educationally impactful programs at an incredible value that put students first.


There are four core principles that form the foundation of our programs:

  • Sustainability Immersion: Deep engagement in the subject and practice of sustainability
  • Environmental Study: An interdisciplinary study of human interaction with the environment
  • Active Learning: We emphasize a hands-on, practical application of academic concepts with an emphasis on developing critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • Leadership Development: We use a team-based approach to overcoming physical and intellectual challenges with the goal of developing future environmental leaders
