Chilly spring break trip planned

Wilkes Adventure Education is hosting a spring break trip at the Frost Valley YMCA, located in the Catskill Mountain region of New York State. The tentative dates of this trip are March 8-11.

The trip will include activities such as cross-country skiing, campfires, snow tubing and maple sugaring.

Wilkes Adventure Education has offered this trip for the last few years. The trip is partially funded through Wilkes University, as well as the club. Costs will include transportation to and from the Frost Valley YMCA. The exact cost of the trip will be released to students once it is finalized.

The trip allows students to explore the outdoors after spending several weeks stuck in a classroom.  This trip provides an opportunity to participate in fun, outdoor activities, regardless of the colder temperatures. After a long day of cross-country skiing, participants can enjoy warming up next to a campfire.

Instead of taking a trip to warmer temperatures, Wilkes students are encouraged to embrace the cold weather on this spring break adventure.

Furthermore, students have the chance to interact with one another outside of the classroom setting.

On this adventure, students can step out of their comfort zone in more way than one. As members participate in unusual activities such as maple sugaring, they can also engage in conversation with new faces from the Wilkes community.

The Frost Valley spring break getaway provides the perfect atmosphere to build friendships and create memories with students from the university.

Anyone looking for an adventure-filled, affordable spring break trip should consider choosing the Adventure Learning Alternative Spring Break this March.
