Our Classes

Are you a high school or college student searching for an opportunity to enhance your leadership skills?

Are you a recent graduate who needs help distinguishing yourself from the competition?

Do want something fun and exciting to talk about during a college entrance interview or at your next job interview?

Are you looking for an outdoor adventure that will make you a better leader in your community, at your school, or in your organization?

Cleveland Zephyr – Outdoor Leadership Education

The Cleveland Zephyr Outdoor Academy uses an experience-based curriculum to teach outdoor leadership.

You’ll learn to lead your course-mates through rugged wild areas using a map and compass, and work as a team to find creative solutions to real-world problems.

We’ll explore what it means to be a leader, and help you define what kind of leader you want to be.

You’ll get to try on different leadership styles as you manage your course-mates for the day.

You’ll learn about different decision-making styles, and how to apply them to make you a better leader.

You’ll learn basic wilderness survival skills, have the chance to become a Leave No Trace Trainer, and learn the benefits of living simply while leaving minimal impact on pristine wilderness areas.

We’re offering trips to the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest and the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area where breathtaking scenery provides a beautiful classroom for you to learn how to be a better leader. When you return home you’ll have stories of sleeping under the stars, working hard to travel through dense forest, and navigating the unknown.
