          Outdoor Leadership Program

          Centered on Leadership Development

          502 Bad Gateway

          During the 4-5 day Outdoor Leadership Program trips, students focus their attention on the following:

          • Responsibility: No-trace camping and the human impact on wilderness areas
          • History, ecology, and geology of the area: Much of the learning takes place as a result of student-generated questions and discussion.
          • Interpersonal communication: Effective communication is prompted by the group dynamics that occur in an outdoor environment. Learning stresses responsibility, empathy, compassion, and cooperation
          • Outdoor skills: Advanced skills in backpacking, canoeing, rock-climbing, and cross-country skiing.
          • Planning
          • Leadership
          • Problem-solving
