Environmental History Students Enjoy Backpacking Trip

Students from Woodberry's Environmental History course braved torrential downpours earlier this month to spend six days and five nights exploring the rich history of Shenandoah National Park.
During their backpacking trip the sixth form students and instructor Nolan LaVoie camped at a remote wilderness cabin that predates the park. They also visited Rapidan Camp, a retreat established by President Herbert Hoover in the 1920s. The camp is located at the headwaters of the Rapidan, the river that runs past Woodberry. 
When not hiking and studying the area's history, the students had time to fish and swim. This is the second year the course has been offered to Woodberry sixth formers.
