Description
PSU Summit Day is a collaborative project between Healthy PSU and our Adventure Education Dept./Outdoor Center. The goal is to engage leaders/participants in a meaningful group physical activity, hiking outdoors with a purposeful intention while promoting personal growth and leadership. This experience will provide an opportunity for individuals to strive towards the summit of a given mountain while connecting with others to build social support, health & well-being. The participants will be introduced to trail hiking techniques, safety and equipment needs, physical activity assessments, proper nutrition and hydration, medical questionnaires, journal reflection and access to the Wellness Council of America's On the Move University on-line/mobile platform. All of which will prepare them for a safe, guided hiking experience in the beautiful mountains of New Hampshire.
