Our courses each summer at Fall Line South may vary geographically from one river to the next, but they all have one thing in common: students LOVE them. Read the student testimonials below to get a sense of the transformative power our field institute has on these young adventurers.

This has honestly been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had…I met people who would’ve never been in my life otherwise and loved getting to know them. All in all, these ten days have been nothing short of life-changing.

Learning was immediate–it was right there in front of me. Learning about plants, animals, birds, stars–everything–was visual, tactile, auditory, and involved some sort of moving around. There were no times I was bored. All the instructors’ enthusiasm made their special fields interesting to learn about.

The people and land created an experience to fondly and deliberately remember, as opposed to facts to memorize or assignments without ostensible purpose. Learning feels enjoyable, fun, and real in the field.

This was really a life-changing experience.
