National Outings

Participant Testimonials

A lot has changed since John Muir established the Outings program back in 1901. Our satisfied participants, on the other hand, remain consistent.

In 2009, 98% of participants said they would take another trip with us. In fact, many return year after year—a testament to our affordable prices, dedicated volunteer leaders, and the spectacular locations where these adventures take place.

But don't just listen to us—get it straight from the source!
