Delegates Conquer the Second Overnighter!

Delegates charged through uncooperative West Virginia weather during their second overnight camping trip. Students went kayaking, climbing, and hiking all over the woods in West Virginia. Hiking groups overcame high creek levels to succeed on the trails. Climbers gripped wet rocks to conquer challenging routes. Even the less than ideal weather couldn’t diminish the enthusiasm of this group of incoming college freshmen.  IMG_2465
