Minnesota -TrekNorth Junior and Senior High School students had a blast being close to nature doing hiking, biking, and painting rocks at Lake Bemidji State Park from Sept. 22-24, as part of the school’s Experiential Education Program.

Students in grades 6-8 had a chance to experience outdoor adventure skills, build camaraderie with other students and also build their leadership skills. The activities each day include mountain biking, hiking, and nature immersion. After the activity, they had picnic lunches and spent free time at the lakeshore.

Upperclassmen also had the chance to act as junior trip leaders where they assist with trip planning and participate in a leadership role for the younger participants and earn elective credit.
