This course is designed to provide students with skills necessary to plan, participate in, and enjoy adventures that take place away from urban centers. A connectedness with nature and the ability to make choices for a sustainable future will be some of the underlying themes of the course. Classes will meet outside the school schedule once per week throughout the school year. A significant field trip component exists with this course, which could include a fall camping trip and a spring adventure. Students will gain skills in camping, safety, navigation, route selection, equipment use, equipment maintenance, hiking and canoeing, as well as gain interpersonal skills as they work with their peers to meet individual and group goals. Personal growth will be achieved as students are pushed to their limits both physically and mentally.
