Your Outdoor Leadership Adventure

What do paddling, rock-climbing and St. Norbert College have in common? A Gap Experience you won’t forget!

Outward Bound Adventure
Throughout the Northwoods segment of the Gap Experience, you’ll have evening discussions to explore the personal and group challenges encountered. Topics will include leadership, independent decision-making, goal-setting, responsibility and teamwork. At other times during the course, you’ll have opportunities to learn geology, discuss environmental ethics, and delve into the natural history of the Northwoods and Lake Superior. Throughout the duration of your wilderness travel, you will be living simply and practicing the act of "leave no trace"; which essentially means whatever you need -- in terms of food and shelter -- you will carry with you, and leave nothing behind but footprints.

This expedition is an exciting way to learn about yourself; gain technical outdoor skills, acquire practical, contemporary leadership skills; and become a valued team member in a challenging and inspiring setting.
