On a four-day program, students experience an arrival day, packed days on the trail, three night programs, and a departure day. On a five-day program, students also experience an arrival and departure day, as well as four night programs and additional trail time. Every group has the chance for teambuilding, a guided solo walk, a pond or creek study, and garden time. For any week, one of the mid-week activities is an adventure hike to the top of Walker Peak. Teachers may also opt for a beach field trip in place of this. Our night programs include a welcoming campfire, night walk, barn boogie, and skit night. On departure days, students celebrate their triumphant week and have a closing ceremony. Look at a typical schedule HERE.
