Audubon - The Audubon Center of the North Woods is a three to four day residential experience (students stay overnight in one of the Center's cabins) where students have an opportunity to learn in a variety of experiential educational based settings, while also earning credit. Students will be introduced to topics such as biology, ecology, wildlife studies, history, natural resource conservation, and much more; all taught by graduate students and other professionals from around the country.
Outward Bound ~ Hahn Leadership Academy - The Hahn Leadership Academy is a partnership with Voyager Outward Bound School created to provide students with outdoor technical skills training, as well as social-emotional learning, and leadership opportunities. Students invited to be a part of the program will attend two five day long wilderness expeditions, as well as eight separate field days throughout the course of a year. This exciting program is provided at no cost to the students thanks to significant grants received by our partner Voyager Outward Bound School.
