Exploring the wilderness of Southern California,  this spring fitness option combines backpacking, rock-climbing, and wilderness survival skills in order to prepare students for a multi-day trip in the backcountry.  Students will increase cardiovascular fitness while also developing greater strength and agility. Wilderness survival skills and trip planning experience will increase student confidence as they prepare to embark on each outdoor adventure.
