About Us

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.


Working with youth ages 9 to 19, Kroka provides unique wilderness programs centered around the cultivation of consciousness and altruistic will. The container of multi-day expeditions traveling through wild places is one that pushes us as human beings to experience vulnerability and reliance on community (both human and non-human). In return, we are rewarded with humility, compassion, elation, a sense of reverence for the natural world, and a deep feeling of belonging.

Grounded on 120 beautiful acres of forest, wetland, and farmland in Marlow, NH, the Kroka Village has grown over the years to become an intentional community of residential staff, a biodynamic farm, and a basecamp that supports the magic of learning and growth to happen. Offering 8-weeks of summer programs, spring and fall programs for school groups, and two semester programs, the Kroka Village is a bustling place!
