The Freshmen Outdoor Orientation Trip (F.O.O.T.) is a unique wilderness experience which will take place the week before school begins.

You will hike, camp, cook outdoors, play games, swim in waterfalls, and spend a day giving back to the mountains by learning how to build and maintain hiking trails.
