It’s hard for us to resist the call of the forests, the rush of the rivers, the calm of the dark sky – and we want you along for the ride as a small group of us head into the magic of the Adirondacks! Covering over 6 million acres – yep, 6 MILLION ACRES – the Adirondack Mountains are the largest protected natural area in mainland USA. And for a full semester, we get to call it home as we explore its endless trails into the depths of its wildness.
We’ll live in log cabins, splash around in lakes, have good ol’ classic campfires, and maybe come a few inches closer to appreciating the nurture of nature. At times like these, removing yourself from unnecessary stress is extremely important for health and wellbeing, as well as giving you the mental space you need to concentrate on
Our New York Discovery Campus will provide a calm, quiet base for study during the week, and exciting adventures in your downtime. This is a summer camp ground with two private lakes and all the stops- archery, riflery, rock climbing, soccer pitch, basketball courts, tennis courts, swimming, diving, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, rafting, and mountain biking all around you. Don’t worry, it still has great WIFI so you can complete your classes and then hit those 500 miles of trails! We think you’ll love this nature-filled semester location.
Monday to Friday you're a normal college student and on the weekends our program instructors will facilitate exciting adventures in your downtime, including;
• Rock Climbing
• Hiking in the woods
• Fishing in local rivers and lakes
• Mountain Biking
• Archery and Riflery Range
• Environmental service learning projects
