Just six hours away from the stacks of textbooks and coffee-stained paper of semester midterms are the Adirondack Mountains, sloping in the mist of a crisp New York October. This quad break weekend, thirteen Gordon College students and two staff members returned to La Vida’s base camp at Lake Clear to engage in a variety of service projects with the rangers of the Adirondack State Park.
The Adirondacks themselves are known and beloved by many students on campus who have taken on La Vida’s college summer expeditions, worked as wilderness trip leaders—called “sherpas”—or served with the program’s support staff. Seven students were participants from Gordon’s WILD semester. The annual service trip offered this group of La Vida supporters a chance to give back to a program and a landscape that had impacted them significantly. In volunteering, the students all had a common purpose and interest: practicing environmental stewardship and experiencing fellowship rooted in a place.
The weekend projects ranged from building and clearing trails on Hurricane Mountain to digging privy holes at campsites on Pollywog Pond. Volunteers both hiked and canoed to their work sites, and the last day of the trip was spent hiking the breathtaking Phelps Mountain in the High Peaks Region.
