Taking an Outside Chance, in Tents and Purposes

About 30 students took part in the inaugural Penn College Outdoor Weekend on Friday and Saturday, enjoying a camping trip amid the Schneebeli Earth Science Center’s 400-plus acres of scenic surroundings. Organized by the Student Activities Office – and enhanced by hospitable weather and the playground that IS the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies’ living laboratory – the overnight experience allowed students to learn Survival 101 tips; practice their open-fire cooking skills with “mountain pies” and s’mores; prepare their own campsites; and much more.
