Imagine hiking through the rugged peaks of New England’s White Mountains or cutting through the waves of the Atlantic on a sea kayak during your mod break. Under the guidance of professionally trained leaders, students can experience the thrill and challenge of such adventures through our longstanding Wilderness Program.
Students travel north to the White Mountains for backpacking trips in the fall; a cross country skiing, snow shoeing or ice climbing trip in the winter; or to Maine, for canoeing or sea kayaking trips in the spring.
The program provides opportunities for healthy physical and mental challenges for students of all skills levels, while teaching outdoors and survival skills. Through these trips, students gain a deeper sense of community through collaboration and respect for each other – their success depends on it!
