Our goal at Adventure Treks is to help young adults lead a more enriching life, and we believe LAS offers a profound and intensive opportunity to deepen outdoor, interpersonal, and leadership skills. During their time in Costa Rica and the Pacific Northwest, students will gain mastery in outdoor skills like backpacking, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, and whitewater kayaking; take a wilderness first responder certification and swift water rescue course; and learn essential life skills.
During the fall semester, students will have the opportunity to earn up to 14 academic credit hours through Western Carolina University. LAS graduates will also have the inside track to Adventure Treks’ internship program.
Adventure Treks’ gap semester is fully accredited by the Gap Year Association.
