Boojum Institute for Experiential Education

Updated: October 17, 2002

The Boojum Institute for Experiential Education is a 501(C)3 nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to helping young people from all backgrounds as well as adults learn more about nature, the environment and themselves. Guided by a mission of “To unlock potential, promote self-discovery, and inspire growth,” the Boojum Institute has provided often life-changing experiences to more than 80,000 people since its creation in 1975.

Utilizing a range of curriculum-focused activities in magnificent settings throughout the West that includes rock climbing, backpacking, river travel and a high ropes challenge course, “the Boojum experience” increases leadership skills and the capacity to work well with others, enhances team performance, and helps participants become better environmental citizens.

With a highly skilled staff and a commitment to safety, and as one of few organizations in the US accredited by the international Association for Experiential Education, Boojum’s programs utilize the impact of nature and experiential hands-on learning to create a powerful experience. As a result, Boojum programs help shape people, young and old, by developing their sense of self-worth, compassion, integrity and strength of character. The result for participants is an increased understanding of their own capacities to learn and lead with others – to the benefit of themselves, their schools, institutions and communities.
