Where consciousness meets wilderness

Kroka Expeditions is a non-profit wilderness expedition school based on a year-round, organic farm in Marlow, New Hampshire. We believe that consciousness and altruistic will can be brought forward through a living relationship with the natural world, and by taking our places within the circle of community.

Announcing Kroka’s Leadership Transition

Dear Kroka Community, Twenty eight years ago, Kroka was born out of our youthful idealism,…

We believe that the awakening of consciousness and altruistic will in young people is essential in creating a just and peaceful world.

We believe in the power of nature and community to awaken our highest selves.

We believe that pushing past our limits helps us shed the layers between ourselves and the world, and that vulnerability is an essential condition for wisdom and compassion.

We believe that appropriate risk taking is a doorway to trust in ourselves and others.

We believe in the just distribution of resources, living simply, rigorous work, celebration, song and ritual, and reverence for all of life.

Kroka was recently featured on WMUR TV’s Chronicle program

“Your program is extraordinary. You are not simply a ‘summer camp’ or even a ‘wilderness camp,’ … you are growing human beings.”

– Summer Parent
