Grow and lead on the Sea of Cortez
Open the door to lifelong outdoor adventure and leadership on the Semester in Baja. Explore winding canyons in the Sonoran Desert. Sail quiet coves on clear blue water in the Sea of Cortez. Watch the sunset from the beach after a day of paddling your kayak. On this semester, you’ll learn the outdoor skills you need to explore these wild and beautiful places.
Leadership will be a key focus on this course. Taking on a different role in your sailboat will be your opportunity to learn about teamwork and risk management. Working with your group to navigate challenging terrain is your chance to practice communication and decision making. Your ability to lead will grow from your own experiences. Meeting local educators, fishing communities, and ranchers will connect you to this place and help you learn from cultures different than your own. Unlike most tourists, you’ll spend your time far from city centers exploring the landscape and communities of Baja California. The memories you make and friendships you form will stay with you for the rest of your life. Push yourself to meet new challenges and find your leadership style—you’re ready.
