Morgan Expeditions is a third-generation installment of what the Morgan family has known since 1957, leading student groups into the outdoors to create lifelong bonds, gain new ideas, and build a deeper appreciation for our natural world.
Canoes to Costa Rica
We trace our roots back to 1957 when my grandparents Bob and June Morgan began leading canoe trips for Cincinnati youths into the Canadian wilderness and other rivers across the United States. Years later, my dad and his brothers began leading school, family, and birding groups to Costa Rica. Today, Morgan Expeditions is following a similar route, but forging our own, unique path.
During the off-season from our canoe livery in the US, the Morgan family would head south to Costa Rica where we hosted student groups at our eco-lodge on the Osa Peninsula. Although the lodge is no longer operational, the spirit of student exploration lives on through Morgan Expeditions. Our small groups, off-the-beaten itineraries, and leadership aim to provide students with lifelong memories and friendships, a better sense of themselves and the world, and the importance of teamwork.
Creating Morgan Expeditions
Being a part of my dad's trips both as a student and leader, I always dreamt of creating my own student adventures. I founded Morgan Expeditions to mirror the magic my dad created on the student trips he led to our lodge in Costa Rica. Just as my dad embraced nature, sought adventure, and grew strong group bonds, Morgan Expeditions was created to do the same.
