ational Parks Experience is an innovative educational program. This program enhances the learning of science, history and Native American culture while fostering a love for the outdoors. The National Parks Experience is dedicated to getting young people outside and into America's parks and public lands. It is our firm belief that expanding young peoples' world through hiking and backpacking trips not only enriches their lives and helps them be better prepared for their future, but also instills in them a sense of responsibility and stewardship for the natural world.

"Let children walk with Nature, Let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, Their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, Plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, And they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life."
– John Muir
