ADVENTURE ORIENTATION PROGRAM

ADVENTURE WITH US!

Through a unique adventure-based program, students are empowered to build friendships, develop leadership skills, gain confidence, and play an active role in their personal high school success!

 

The program is an amazing 4-day, 3-night, outdoor backpacking trip in the Green Mountains of Vermont designed to ease the transition from middle school to Essex High School.

REAL ADVICE FROM REAL STUDENTS​

To support incoming students to develop positive social networks, upper-class EHS students and adults serve as trip leaders throughout the program. Students form new friendships and are better prepared for the next chapter in their journey!

 

Because Essex CHIPS is a nonprofit organization that relies heavily on community contributions, registration fees are based on a sliding scale ranging from $100-$500 per participant.

 

All registration proceeds go back into the Adventure Orientation Program to help us provide financial assistance for other participants and purchase materials needed for the program.
