American Explorers

The 2015 American Explorers Have Been Selected!

The journey begins for our 2015 American Explorers! From June 8 through July 19, 77 American Explorers will experience the thrill of outdoor education and leadership development with North Carolina Outward Bound in the mountains of Table Rock and Cedar Rock, NC and kayaking the seas of the Outer Banks.

This summer, 53 American Explorers are returning from the inaugural expedition in Montana’s Big Sky in 2014, while 24 brand new American Explorers join the group. The 24 young leaders participating for the first time all reside in Atlanta’s historic neighborhoods of English Avenue, Vine City and Castleberry Hill.

The American Explorers hail from a variety of organizations throughout Atlanta including Kipp Atlanta Collegiate, Drew Charter, Brown, Washington High School, Raising Expectations, Agape, and Best Academy.
