One of my kids is interested in doing the NOLS backpacking course in Alaska- specifically the one for 16-17 year olds. Would really appreciate any insights or suggestions from anybody who has been on it. Thanks in advance!
I took a two week teen course with NOLS in Wyoming and their program is great. There are so many opportunities to practice what they teach you. I came back with great friends and their instructors are very professional and are great mentors. I would totally recommend a NOLS trip.
