What is a Summer Wilderness Trip?

Every summer, Explorers and Mentors depart for their Summer Wilderness Trip. A culmination of all the skills Explorers have learned throughout the school year, Summer Wilderness Trips get increasingly more difficult as the Explorers get older. All week, Mentors translate the teachable moments of the outdoors into life lessons relevant to the challenges Explorers face at home and at school. After a week in the wilderness, Explorers return home equipped with real life skills necessary to become leaders - academically, professionally, individually, and socially.
