Sequoyah 9th Graders’ Utah Field Studies: Exploring Nature’s Classroom!

Over the course of four days, Sequoyah 9th graders backpacked 16 miles through the remote canyon country of Escalante National Monument. Students built upon their comfort of outdoors skills as they learned how to pack a backpack, read a map and follow trails, cook in the backcountry, and work together as a small field team.

During the backcamp portions of our trip in Kodachrome State Park, Snow Canyon State Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Zion National Park, students were offered a variety of options for how they could explore these spaces. These options included full day hikes, art and photography, sand dune dance parties, solo time, and more.

“We appreciate all the enthusiasm, support, and growth mindset students brought to this experience and look forward to getting everyone out again in a few short months on our High Sierra backpack in August!”
