Outdoor skills is our non-competitive sports offering for the spring term. Over the years, this program has been flexible depending on the numbers, team leaders, and student interest. In the past, hiking, outdoor exploration, canoe trips, yoga, rock climbing, and martial arts have all been included activities.
