The Olympia Mission

A trip to Olympia is a journey of self-discovery. Students leave their regular lives with the comforts of home and school and come to Olympia to challenge themselves.

The Outdoor Education program helps students step of their comfort zone and learn new skills, talents and character traits which they will take home and make a difference in their lives.

Challenge by choice

Olympia staff empowers students to choose the level and type of involvement which challenges them to learn something from the experience.
