DID YOU KNOW? Every Squad program includes between 1 and 4 miles of walking. We might take an urban hike through neighborhoods or a trail hike through the woods, but we are moving as we learn. DC is our classroom!
Urban Adventure Squad/Urban Learning and Teaching Center (UAS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), Washington, D.C.-based education organization that supports schools and school communities with equitable, community-based, outdoor learning programs. We offer full-day programs when schools are closed, and we partner with schools and communities to connect students to their neighborhoods with curriculum-aligned lessons in science, history, math, art, engineering, and writing, and to train teachers in outdoor learning.
