Project Exploration

Founded in 1977, Project Exploration is family-owned and dedicated to teaching and inspiring Arizona’s youth through outdoor education. We are committed to bringing learning to life through unique and exciting hands-on educational experiences. Creating outdoor learning “classrooms”, our field trips are designed to align with state curriculum standards for each grade level. We aim to enhance the educational lives of young students while instilling in them a deeper appreciation for our natural world and the necessity to preserve it. We have a passion for outdoor education and hope you do too!
