  • In a wilderness adventure trip, students will be away from traffic and city lights -They’ll see the stars every night - and will be miles from the nearest grocery store. - “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds” Postal Carriers Motto - true for outdoor travel as wellBackcountry camping entails: - cooking most meals on camp stoves - sleeping on the ground in tents - learning new ways to stay clean and healthy as there are no showers - don’t worry: the leaders are well trained in how to stay clean and healthy.Bonding experience: -It is the distance from “civilization” and the lack of common conveniences that create an environment that allows the students to come together and work as a team to accomplish their goals; -these goals can be: - getting to the top of a ridge to see the lookout view - successfully completing a climb - canoeing through tough winds to reach that night’s campsite. - sea kayaking under the hot sun, while still having fun and staying positive.
  • Loyola students & Alumni: -All VOLUNTEERS– do not get paid, donate their time to train, prepare, and be in the field -leaders have gone through an intensive selection and training process -alumni return, usually after their senior year, for “one more Pre-O”Wilderness First Responder: - 80 hour, 9 day intensive medical training course -All leaders receive this training in their first year as OAE LeadersOver 800 hours of training offered every year -Evenings, weekends, Spring Break.
