Our calendar of events begins with five day backpacking trip with other sophomores and transfer students and led by two to three junior or senior Leaders. Our annual fall trip is facilitated in the wilderness setting of the White Mountains National Forest in New Hampshire. This experience, though short, can become a life changing one. BOLTers learn about themselves as leaders and is introduced to a community of friends that can last for years. You can learn more about the BOLT program on our About page, and more about your son or daughter's experience on our BOLTers page which includes a page for our Fall Trip called "A Day in the Life on a BOLT Backpacking Trip" and a summer mailings link.
