Summer Adventures

Posted on July 10, 2012 by Fields

This summer Wildlands students will embark on a brand new adventure! Spots are quickly filling up for the launch of our Summer Ad- venture Program. The program consists of three sessions, each 2 weeks in length, which will include a canoeing or backpacking trek through some of Wisconsin's most pristine and wild territory.

The trips, run Monday through Friday throughout the summer, are open for students from any school or district. We encourage students to spread the word to friends, relatives, and others who may be interested! The cost to enroll is only $20.00, and no previous back- country experience is necessary to partici- pate! Students pack their own personal clothing, but are provided with all the gear they will need for the trip. In addition, stu- dents currently attending Wildlands School can earn valuable school credit for their next year's learning plan. Registrations is capped at 12 students for each trip, and is offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Trip dates and registration information can be found below, or at www.wildlandschool.net.

For students completing grades 7-9, we will embark on a 3-day, 2-night canoe trip down the wild and serene Kickapoo River in South- west Wisconsin. Trips are split according to gender, with a boys trip in Mid-June and a girls trip in Mid-July. Students spend the first week (Monday-Friday) at Wildlands preparing for the trip. They'll learn valuable skills and experiences needed to successfully make their home on the river. The second week of the program, the students will depart for the Wildcat State Park and the Kickapoo River for 3 days of adventure on the water.

For students completing grades 10-11 we will offer a 4-day, 3-night backpacking adventure along the North Country National Scenic Trail northeast of Cable, WI. This co-ed trip will meet at Wildlands School Monday- Friday the first week in order to build skills and abilities necessary for the next week's trip. We will focus on building hard skills such as fire-making and first-aid as well as emphasize leadership, confidence, and coop- erative problem solving. The second week of 

the course will take us to the Porcupine Lake Wilderness Area where we'll follow the North Country Trail as it carves its way through one of only three remaining virgin forest stands in the state of Wisconsin!

If you or someone you know is inter- ested in regis- tering for a Wildlands Summer Ad- venture, more information is available online at www.wildlandschool.net. Online registration is also available by follow- ing the "Apply Now" link under the "Enrollment and Summer School headline. Additionally, students can register over the phone during normal school day hours at 715- 877-2292. Remember, enrollment is limited to the first 12 students confirming registration, for each trip and spots are beginning to fill!
