Eagle Eye's 2019 Summer Excursion will be a unique partnership with the Saint John Institute and COR Expeditions.
Participants in the excursion will join Fr. Nathan Cromly and students from the SJI Masters Leadership School on a two-week backpacking course led by COR Expeditions. This course will take place in the breathtaking Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, which are considered one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the entire United States. Over the course of the two-week trip, all participants will benefit from spiritual formation, daily Mass, and Adoration led by Fr. Nathan as well as the leadership programming facilitated by COR. Each participant will have the opportunity to hone their leadership skills and develop the technical skills of effective back country living.
Prior backpacking experience is not necessary, but adequate physical fitness is a must to function effectively while backpacking at high elevation. The majority of gear needed, including backpacks, tents, and more, can be borrowed from COR and is included in the trip's cost. Questions concerning the course itself can be directed to Sarah Carlstrom (firstname.lastname@example.org), while questions concerning cost and registration can be directed to Kalene (email@example.com).
Participants should arrive in Denver, CO by 8pm on July 25. They will spend the night at SJI and drive to Lander the following morning (approx. 6 hour drive). For departure, participants have the option to take the last flight out of Riverton, WY on August 11 (see www.denverairconnection.com for flights) OR to fly out of Denver on August 12.
WFA + CPR option: for participants interested in obtaining their WFA (Wilderness First Aid) and CPR certification, please arrive in Denver by 10am on July 23. You will drive to Lander with SJI students and complete the WFA/CPR course before heading into the back country. Please note there is an additional $200 charge for this option.
