Explore with us!
Learn and Explore trips are opportunities for Wayfinding Academy students and close supporters to engage in a multi-day experience. Each trip will include learning components and a chance for participants to stretch.
Learn and Explore trips take place during the three months that our students are on break from classes -- April, August, and December. We also offer mini Learn and Explore trips that take place throughout the year.
For our full scale Learn and Explore trips, Wayfinding Academy students, alumni, crew, faculty, board members, and Luminaries have the first opportunity to sign up. Then, if there is still additional space, the trip may be opened up to the general community. For our mini trips, sign ups are first come, first served!
Our students, crew, faculty, board members, and Luminaries are an engaged group and excited about these trips. If you want to make sure you don't miss the chance to join us on one of these trips of a lifetime (and receive a discount), click below to become a Luminary today!

This Learn & Explore trip will begin Friday morning where you will travel to Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, near Portland and set up your campsites at Pickathon which is a three-day music festival that takes place every year at around this time. The event began in 1998 as a bluegrass festival and has since expanded to include folk and indie artists. Learn more>>
Participants will spend three days in Ashland Oregon attending The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) which is a regional repertory theatre. Each year, the Festival produces many plays, usually a few from Shakespeare and the remainder by other playwrights, on three stages during an eight-month long season. Learn more >>
