“The perfect synthesis of technical outdoor skills and teaching methodologies, the Outdoor Education program at CMC gives its graduates the necessary tools needed to become an effective instructor in the field and in the classroom. By providing direct wilderness experiences, the program at CMC made me a lifelong environmental advocate and has inspired me to become an active participant in the effort to create awareness of our collective responsibilities to learn about and protect the earth.”
