12th Grade

Trekkers offers a six month program that culminates in a five-day winter wilderness trip for seniors who have been with the program since 7th grade. Knowing that these students will graduate in a few months, the focus of this trip will be to symbolically mark the end of their high school experience through a rites of passage celebration. Trekker adult mentors and the natural world will team up to help enable students to find meaning and guidance during this major turning point in their life, as well as cultivate a new vision for their lives.
