We are excited to announce the new outdoor recreation program at Wellesley!
While all recreation is a great way to stay active, reduce stress and have fun, outdoor recreation has long been recognized as a uniquely powerful way to learn leadership skills. Genuine experiences—complete with genuine risk—foster skills that cannot be learned in a classroom. The mountains teach risk management, communication and tolerance for adversity and uncertainty, to name just a few. Unpredictable mountain weather, self-imposed hardship and the joy of accomplishment forge powerful friendships. Ultimately, the mountains teach self-reliance and team-reliance, skills that are difficult to learn in our hyper-comfortable modern world. Students typically learn that they are capable of more than they imagined.
