In addition to course time, we also have time set aside for social activities such as Mountain Challenge. AP participants will have an opportunity to sign up for this fun, get-to-know-you event scheduled the first night of the conference. Mountain Challenge will provide a high quality outdoor experience, designed especially for AP teachers. Taking into account the diversity found within a group of individuals, the mountain challenge experience uses personalized outdoor learning techniques to make an impact. Your experience will help you get acquainted with the other participants and give you ideas to take back to your classroom.
