We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!
We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Hometown: Chappaqua, New York
College: Colgate University
Through the outdoor education program at Colgate University, I completed a leadership training course, and now I lead my peers on trips in the Adirondacks.
Originally from Chappaqua, New York, I am currently a sophomore at Colgate where I plan on majoring in astrogeophysics. Over my winter break, I returned to campus early to take a Wilderness First Responder course and go on a trip to the Adirondacks, which included winter camping, cross country skiing, and ice climbing. On campus, I am a member of the woodturning club, a passion I just discovered this past year. Woodturning involves mounting wood on a lathe and using tools to shape the wood into bowls, cups, pens, and many more fun projects. When it’s warm outside, I love to ride on the mountain biking trails around Colgate. I am currently working towards summiting New York’s 46 High Peaks — a goal that I started pursuing during my senior year in high school. In my free time, I love listening to music of all different genres, and discovering new music.
In 2019, I led Iceland Expedition. Watching my students wake up each morning with smiles on their faces, ready to take on long days of hiking, was inspiring. It was in the toughest moments that they learned the most about themselves and realized just how capable they really were. Watching them finish the trek was a moment of pride and elation, and I know that they all walked away from the trip having grown together.
