Your Wild Awaits

More than 15 years ago we set out to help people gain the knowledge and know-how needed to have a great time outdoors. The jumping off point was online education and the mission was simple – empower people to get to the water faster and with more confidence. Inspired by certifying more than 650,000 people with our government accredited online courses we’re breaking new ground with the Campfire Collective.

Wildly Mission-Driven

It’s not what we put out there that matters. It’s what people do with it. Success should be measured by adventures taken, friends inspired and stewards of the wild born. Working together to achieve this, while protecting the outdoors is our mission.

Amongst outdoor recreation educators, we stand alone in our commitment to donate 1% of our annual gross revenues directly to nonprofit grassroots organizations who sustain, protect and preserve the wild. With every course delivered, we donate.
