Watch kids develop the attitudes, skills, and knowledge of an explorer.

Developed in conjunction with National Geographic Education, this unique program helps kids and teens under 18 get more out of exploring and have more fun, too. On every Galápagos, Alaska, Baja—and now Antarctica—expedition, kids and teens choose cool activities, from earning a Zodiac “driver’s license” to recording wildlife sightings in their Field Notebook. Each one is designed to help them see and do more.

Go with National Geographic certified field educators

Kids benefit from naturalists who are specially trained as National Geographic field educators. They optimize daily “In the Field" activities to prompt kids to watch out for a particular item, like a creature with scales or a giant coral head on land, then record their observations in their Field Notebook. Kids also take part in a variety of fun activities: snorkeling with sea lions in Galápagos and Baja, identifying whale flukes in Alaska, or kayaking with penguins in Antarctica. Parents and grandparents see kids connecting with nature and learning in new ways. Kids are given room to use their creativity to tell stories about the unique things they see and do through photos, videos, music, and drawing. It helps develop their observation skills and they go home with new skills, knowledge, and confidence. 

Having direct access to a naturalist was a real bonus. We could ask questions whenever we wanted and I got to learn about what I was interested in.
