Returning customers may notice that many of the Inside the Outdoors programs have changed in cost with many increasing.  The decision to increase program costs and mileage fees is not a decision made lightly.  Though many of our programs have not increased in cost since the 2019-2020 school year, the rising costs of personnel including benefits, materials, and fuel require us to adjust pricing in order to continue to serve our schools and students.  We are deeply appreciative of your understanding.
