How many miles a day do students hike on a typical expedition?

The amount of miles a group might cover varies depending on the season, weather, and overall ability level of the group. Each week we tailor each Team’s expedition with all of these factors in mind. A group might cover as much as 10 miles in a day or as few as one or two miles. In the summer months we also offer canoeing expeditions where students don’t hike at all, although they might cover several miles in a canoe. Our goal is to help our students feel challenged while also keeping them safe so that they can benefit from the powerful feeling of success and sense of accomplishment.
