The Freshmen Outdoor Orientation Trip (F.O.O.T.) is a unique wilderness experience which will take place the week before school begins. Trained upperclassmen will lead backpacking trips along the Appalachian Trail. These trips are designed for all levels of experience. F.O.O.T. offers an amazing opportunity for incoming students to meet a small group of new classmates and establish relationships with older student leaders. 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.
