As students progress though the trip and the challenges involved in backpacking, they will be given the time to reflect on leadership, debrief their experiences and discuss what makes a good team, and the qualities of leaders they would like to emulate.
Students will learn about plant and animal adaptations, human impact, and discuss issues facing our forests today. Taking time to reflect on the environment around us, students will improve their knowledge of the San Bernardino National Forest.
Taking full advantage of the experience in front of them, students will learn the tips and best practices for survival in the great outdoors. They will end the trip with a better understanding that it’s not just a walk in the woods.
