Within our caring and inclusive environment, UPrep's Summer Programs provide the perfect platform for current and incoming students in our community to connect with others. Our Summer Programs include Outdoor Education opportunities, Puma Girls and Boys Sports Camps, and the Puma Leadership Conference.
The Outdoor Education Program offers wilderness/backpacking experiences for students in grades 8 through 12. The mission of the program is to provide sustainable, environmentally conscious, local outdoor experiences that give students further opportunities to become socially and environmentally responsible citizens of the world.
The program practices Leave No Trace ethics in all of its sponsored activities, whether at school or in the wilderness. The dedication to Leave No Trace ethics and sustainability extends to all facets of the program; we keep the program footprint as small as possible in the urban environment as well as the wilderness.
Our summer wilderness backpacking trips are intended for both beginner and experienced hikers.
