Mt. Kilimanjaro and patagonia Experience
Purpose: To provide students a physical challenge and an outdoor expedition to push their limits.
Partnership: All of our mountain expeditions are booked with Global Basecamps (https://www.globalbasecamps.com/) who outfits our entire experience from preparation to the completion of each hike.
With a large support system of local guides and porters, students hike Mt. Kilimanjaro to the rooftop of Africa or to Patagonia in Chile known by many as the 8th wonder of the world. These physical challenges act as a profound metaphor for the student's gap year; it is a year in which they learn to overcome odds and accomplish things personally, physically, vocationally, and spiritually that they never thought possible. These truths are encapsulated on the mountain as each student travels at their own pace to reach the summit.
