Custom itineraries are made considering interests of the group or club, flight schedules, budget, and number of days of travel (10 days recommended, but not required and fewer or additional days can be requested). Each day includes a leadership activity that focuses on nature and reducing human impact on the environment.

Trips are offered at an affordable tax-deductible price, and in addition OneForest offers travel expenses offset opportunities. All proceeds from fundraising events carried out by O.F.F. go toward overhead for events that subsidize the cost of student fees. O.F.F. works with the students to hold their own fundraising events (such as spaghetti dinner, pancake breakfast, 5k run, etc.) for further cost offset, which have the potential of covering all fees.
