Physical challenge; activities such as weeding, planting, draining ponds, clearing fields etc… are promised to not just push students physically, but to instill value in using one’s body to perform life-essential tasks. Additionally, rock climbing, cycling, and hiking offer exciting and refreshing opportunities for exercise.
Applied sustainability; by actively participating in the process of farming sustainably as well as learning about the theories and facts behind it, we hope students will retain positive attitudes towards sustainability, why it is significant, how it can be applied, and how students can take environmental responsibility into their own hands.
Teamwork; the week is designed to facilitate teambuilding along every step of the way. Student groups will be switched around for activities so that they must work together with the entire larger group. In addition, shared adrenaline-inducing activities such as rock climbing promises to bond students!
