Inside Out believes that self-discovery and group interactions are components of a lifelong education. Learning to work, play, and co-exist are daily requirements in the quest to live positively and contribute our best.
The co-founders of Inside Out recognized the benefits of integrating outdoor experiential and environmental education with a classroom curriculum, work environment, or an overall group/school goal. The common challenge of defining and creating exceptional learning experiences was, and still is, the cornerstone behind the founding of Inside Out, Inc. in 1994. This still holds true for Monica Barrios - co-founder and current owner/director.
Our success thus far is the success of many, and can be attributed to all of those who have supported us, worked with us, and believed in Inside Out year after year – teachers, participants, staff, families of all involved, and many, many friends. Our thanks and appreciation to all of you!
