Colorado Wilderness Challenge

Colorado Wilderness Challenge

The Colorado Wilderness Challenge offers experienced Adventure Club students a summative trip where they can put the skills they’ve developed over the years  into practice in a more challenging, remote mountain environment. Modeled after NOLS courses, CWC will push students a bit harder as well as incorporate hands-on learning about navigation, wilderness first aid, and trip planning, and group leadership. The goal of the program is that students will have the skills necessary to plan and carry out such trips on their own after they leave Christian High.

RMNPProgram Highlights:

  • Learn how to pre-plan an expedition

  • Rock climbing and rappelling

  • 2 peak ascents, double-header 14er (Grays and Torreys)
