Calling All Hikers (Week 7: 8/16-8/20 AD) VERMONT ST. M
Are you interested in outdoor experiences that provide opportunities to explore the beautiful mountains and forests of Oregon? If that’s you, come join us for a full week of adventures, where we dive into an expansive introduction of the many outdoor activities available to all here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Each day will include comprehensive training around safety and preservation efforts that help keep our state parks both beautiful and clean. We focus on introducing and practicing the fundamentals of hiking and backpacking in a way that’s accessible to a young learner, while building self-esteem, disconnecting from distractions, and making new friendships. Our goal is to create a positive learning environment where students feel excited about engaging in the outdoors with their peers. We want each student to walk away feeling a deep appreciation and love for the outdoors. Students will have the opportunity to get real, hands-on experiences hiking around the many beautiful locations here in the Portland area.
