Here we go!

So we're shifting gears a bit to the Sophomore Expedition here on the Burleigh blog. Stay tuned for updates on the gear room, student meetings and clothing lists.

For now I wanted to let you know we're choosing groups on Monday after school meeting!

Here's how it's going to work: every sophomore will be able to pick three people that they want to be in a group with. I'll make sure everyone is in a group with at least one of those three people. Sometimes I'm able to set up groups so that two or even all three of the folks are together. There are several ways to help set up groups the way you want, I'll let you figure that out for yourselves!

We decide groups this way so students have some say into their group. Students will also decide on their menu on expedition. All of these activities are designed to give students more and more control over their expedition until they are finally running the show by the last days of the trip.

If you are concerned about the hiking component of the expedition for any reason please indicate 'non-hiker' on the group selection form and we'll connect to talk more about making sure you have an awesome expedition in a way that is safe for you.

If you are already starting to worry about weather and clothes - check out this video! It's a good introduction to layering and some of the clothes you might be using on the trip.
