It is almost the midway point in the semester so we decided to check in with our Apprentices and ask them some questions about their experience so far!
What has been your favorite part about being in the Apprentice Program?
KU ’17 loves learning all the ropes about the Outdoor Program. MK ’17 said, “My favorite part of the Apprentice Program has definitely been the Wilderness First Aid training. That course was so much fun and the live scenarios made each day so exciting! I never would have thought I could learn so much in two days, and I’m pretty good at making splints too!” BM ’17 also loved being able to go caving for the first time.
What are you most looking forward to learn in the Apprentice Program?
KF ’17 is most looking forward to being able to set up her own Outdoor Programs trip. Learning to cook outdoors is something MK ’17 is excited about.
Any funny stories from being while being in the Apprentice Program this semester?
MK ’17 had this to say, “While during a scenario in Wilderness First Aid KF and I were both supposed to be unconscious victims, and instead she was throwing mini pine cones at me. I still have one!” KF ’17 loved playing charades after backpacking. “We were all having such a great time looking back on our adventure, and we were able to laugh about the hard times we went through.”
