Wilderness Education Orientation 

***No one returns untouched by the sheer power of the wilderness experience; the strength of a wilderness experience, as with all sound outdoor educational pursuits, lies in the blending of recreation, social interaction, and academic and inspirational learning.  Curiosity, wonder, and appreciation become major stimulants for learning, while the lessons are played out in the ever-changing form and patterns of the cosmos.

***Premiums are placed on working together, getting one another through the journey; personal attributes, such as self-reliance, cooperation, self-motivation and perseverance are encouraged.  All are virtues necessary to fulfilling the role as a citizen of the world.

***The aim of this program is to encourage broad and thorough exposure to and appreciation for the nature of diverse and complex ecosystems.

***The purpose of the outdoor action portion of this course is to develop a capacity for leadership, to build character, to heighten sensitivity to the beauty of nature, to challenge one's endurance with rigorous exercise and to encourage teamwork and build trust in one's fellow students through wilderness experience.
