Description:
Inspiring Girls Expeditions inspire future leadership, curiosity, confidence, and success.

Join our team! Each year we select expedition teams of 8-9 teenage girls and 3 instructors to spend 12 days exploring and learning about glaciers and the alpine or marine environment. Through scientific field studies with our team of professional glaciologists, scientists, artists, and mountaineers, you will build critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, and make lasting friendships.

One team explores Mount Baker, an ice-covered volcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. Another team sleeps under the midnight sun while exploring an Alaskan glacier. Our third team explores the connections between glacier and ocean by kayak in Resurrection Bay, near Seward, AK. A team in Switzerland explores the natural wonders of the Findelen glacier. Our two newest expeditions take a team into the Rocky Mountains where they get personal with the alpine landscape through rock climbing, and into Glacier National Park, Canada, where they learn about dynamic glaciers and hardy glacial ecosystems.
