On Thursday, May 17th to Sunday, May 20th 2018 six Donegal High School students and two teachers embarked on a 15 mile backpack expedition in Lycoming County, PA. The students are from a class called the Donegal Experiential Education Program (DEEP). The DEEP instructor, Dr. David Eichler and Mr. Brian McCreary, Emotional Support teacher instructed and supervised the six students as they all navigated with backpacks the steep and rugged mountains of the Tiadaghton State Forest. More than just a backpacking experience students learned navigating trails using map and compass, cooking over camp stoves, erecting tarps to sleep under, practicing LNT (Leave No Trace) skills, observing Timber Rattlesnakes along the way and most importantly realizing those inner qualities of perseverance, compassion, tenacity in pursuit and self-reliance. Senior student Aaron Smith wrote in his impression paper following the expedition, “Not only the physical aspect of the expedition but also mentally. I could use a lot of what I learned in real life. I feel like this is one of the only classes in school that has been able to affect my life outside of school and when I graduate.” Junior student Gabriel Hawley wrote, “The time I spent challenging myself and overcoming obstacles was worth the effort. I would do it again without a doubt. This experience has definitely changed how I look at certain things in my everyday life. Although I was uncomfortable and unmotivated at times, the experience was worth the struggle. The enjoyment and satisfaction was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
June 8-17, 2018 some of these students continued their DEEP experience by embarking on a 10-day sailing and rock climbing course at the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, Maine.
