Here at TheBackpackerTV, we love NOLS. Here is another excellent video that shows just what kind of impact the outdoors has on our youth.
The Arrow Week Expedition is a custom course designed for the Archer School for Girls offered through NOLS Professional Training. It is a five to six day backpacking adventure through the American Southwest. This program has an educational progression for the 7th, 9th, and 11th grade girls. On each course, participants develop leadership and teamwork skills through actual leadership experiences and a comprehensive theoretical component.
