Rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors engage in a variety of academic, wilderness and community pursuits during a five-week session that represents a condensed version of HMI Semester. Students supplement a compulsory wilderness and leadership course with an interdiscplinary environmental science and humanities class that examines the manner in which Americans have viewed and interacted with the natural world. Two 8-day backcountry expeditions develop wilderness skills and employ the mountains as an extended classroom.
