Excursions

On every Adventure EXP program, our programs are designed as a structured & guided but independent experience. That means we make the connections to on-the-job training and local housing, with some virtual and in-person support but you are empowered to explore the region and your own interests in your free time. AdventureEXP will plan excursions in your local region that you can choose to participate in.
