They stayed in the beautiful Jay’s Cabin at Shrine Mountain Inn. The place was just far away enough to consider it backcountry, with a gorgeous trail; an easy trek with time to enjoy the view. The group hiked, cooked meals together, enjoyed team building and outdoor education activities. The students brought back more knowledge in the areas of outdoor skills, leadership, and support skills.Seven students and four staff members pose on the deck of the cabin.
