|Out Back takes the junior class deep into New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest for a program in outdoor education that involves challenges at both a group and individual level. In their groups, students learn to build fires, erect shelters, navigate by compass, and cook. Students also spend three days on solo, experiencing the beautiful wilderness on their own. Surrounded by caring and knowledgeable faculty instructors and WFR-certified student guides, the juniors live in and explore the outdoors, learning powerful lessons about themselves and the world around them.|
