Ogichi Sr. High & College Trip
We've had girls participate in Short Session Trips prior to their first year at college with resounding positive feedback that the experience bridged an important gap for that transition from high school to college.
Young women in their high school/college years are able to experience a 7-day Ogichi wilderness canoe trip without having had prior experience. Cruising School teaches the basics of portaging each piece of equipment, setting up tents, building a fireplace, outdoor cooking, paddling and canoe rescue. This program is an opportunity for Ogichi to introduce tripping to older girls or maintain the tripping experience to our high school campers who have a limited window of time during a particular summer due to summer school, team sports, family travel or a job. In addition, this program is an opportunity for Ogichi to expand our network beyond the Midwest recruiting areas as well as to be a second source of feeding into the staff..
…had to write to say thank you for giving Julianne what I believe was the best experience of her life! The first thing she said to me when I met her at the airport was, “I am going back next summer for 5 weeks”! Since then she has not stopped talking about the trip! I know pretty much every detail including every breakfast, lunch and dinner she ate for a week! I am thrilled over her excitement and cannot wait to give everyone a big hug for introducing Julianne to you, your staff and your wonderful camp. She has returned a happier and more confident person.
