“I am so grateful for all I learned at Kroka. I could have not asked for a better foundation of knowledge for technical skill combined with honest, real communication with students. Kroka is a really special place.”Seth FinemanWilderness Educator & Semester Leader
“Being a part of Kroka has been both nourishing and empowering. Not only has it pushed my edges for growth as an outdoor educator, it has rekindled a sense of belonging and purpose. I care about this work for the community it builds, the responsibility it requires, and the impact it is capable of leaving on the heart of every participant.”Natasha HaugenWilderness Educator
“Every day at Kroka brought something fresh, a new challenge, a different work environment, even sometimes a new face. It taught me many things, technical skills, leadership skills, adaptability, but most of all about my attitude and energy. It helped me to understand that the attitude and energy you bring to life will be brought back to you.”Nate LucasWilderness Educator
