The theme of this course, “Strengths in Action,” is all about discovering your personal gifts and talents.
During these 8 days, you will go on an immersive backpacking trip in the mountains during peak wildflower season. You will learn how to set up camp, cook delicious meals, pack your backpack, read a map, and navigate in the mountains. This adventure will help your team bond as you get to know the other girls in your group in a deeper, more meaningful way than you have ever experienced before.
Throughout the trip, you will have opportunities to discus and explore what really makes you unique in this world. What special attributes do you bring to the group on your backpacking trip? How do you contribute to the team? How can you really bring these gifts forward once you return home? We will work with goal setting, application of leadership skills to home, and development of personal leadership style.
