Enhancing Student Connections: Students' Perceptions of a Spiritually Focused Wilderness Orientation Program
The use of wilderness orientation programs is growing in the U.S. In 2006, more than 17,000 students participated in such programs. In addition, the spiritual development of college students has gained attention. This session will provide the results of a study that investigated students’ perceptions of a spiritually focused wilderness orientation program and the influence of their participation on their transition to college. Participants will also receive an overview of the program design and considerations for implementation.
