The high adventure program imparts different and important lessons to youths about enjoying the environment safely before and while they are actually outside on the trails. The program, whose leader is an outdoors expert with training from the National Outdoor Leadership School and Wilderness Medicine Institute, follows the national 4-H outdoor adventures curriculum.
The high adventure program has three levels:
Class size is limited to the first 18 participants, with an enrollment deadline of August 22. Male and female chaperones will accompany each group. Volunteers with medical training will accompany the group. Participants must provide food and proper clothing. Costs will vary for different trips. The destination for the five-day trip has not been determined.
