Summer Outdoor Adventure

The Castle Rock Institute summer programs are not just study courses; they are also outdoor adventure expeditions. Led by trained and certified instructors, students spend almost every day of the program participating in outdoor activities.

The Institute values connecting body and mind, joining lived experience and the more abstract, theoretical concerns of the intellect. It understands there to be intrinsic benefits to studying issues and ideas drawn from teh Humanities while in direct contact with the natural world.

Outdoor experience at the Castle Rock Institute is designed to enhance students' awareness of nature, foster a better sense of community, provide opportunities for reflection, and also, to be simply fun.
