Camping outside in January in the Northeast in a foot of snow with nothing but a foam pad and sleeping bag separating you from the cold earth might not appeal to many people.  But this past winter break, seven students braved the frigid Adirondack winter for five days in the Adirondacks High Peaks Wilderness the week before the new semester began.  This camping trip was “designed for Outing Club leaders who want to build their skill set and lead trips in a variety of conditions,” according to one of the trip’s leaders, Annie Emanuels ’16.  More ...
