Perspective Adventures strives to provide students with rewarding educational adventure travel programs, which foster personal growth, build confidence and challenge participants and to bring out the best versions of themselves.
Perspective Adventures is an educational adventure experience for teens where students explore our world, while learning to treasure and protect it.
We believe that the outdoors is the ideal setting for learning who we are as leaders, team members, friends, and people. We flourish when distractions are limited to night skies, sunsets, new friends, good conversation, mountain backdrops, and fresh air. We show our students that profound growth comes when you are working for something bigger than yourself.
Perspective provides adventures where students are challenged to get outside, unplug, look around, leave their comfort zones, and are delighted with who they reveal themselves to be.
For over two decades the Perspective team has crafted transformational learning adventures. Whether you are a teacher hoping to actively engage in critical global issues, a parent or student looking for a well structured journey of learning and personal growth, or a university or group seeking a partner to run your own custom programs… you’ve come to the right place.
