Navigating the ice and snow isnt everyones idea of fun, but it was a great adventure for six Christian Brothers Academy students and faculty member Eric Knuth, as they group braved the elements during a Wilderness Leadership Camp held over the February 2011 winter break. CBA students Boxu Zhu 14, Tim OShea 14, Barnes Werner 14, Colin Harrington 14, Alex Boyle 13, and Matt Wanamaker 15 hiked approximately 35 miles of the North Country Trail and explored a frozen waterfall, ice cave and other natural features. The one-week course was designed to promote teamwork and problem solving skills in a wilderness setting.
