Wasatch Academy Leadership Expedition

Explore and expand your capabilities as a leader on a nine-day adventure in the rugged backcountry of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. 

On this expedition, you'll have fun while learning about the outdoors, achieving goals you never thought possible, and developing relationships with your coursemates. You'll learn to turn challenging situations into opportunities, to get along with your group, and to be a leader even when you're following. 

When you emerge from the wilderness, you'll be emboldened, confident, and challenge-ready. You will not only have increased your outdoor skills, but become a capable leader equipped for future challenges in school, college, and life.
