Instructor Name: 
Vicki Reitenauer
Course Description: 

In this Capstone course, PSU students will serve as trip leaders and mentors to Oregon high school students in Camp Fire Columbia’s Xploregon program, a summer “road trip” that engages teens in a 12-day youth-led adventure.


This intensive, immersive experience helps high school students broaden their academic and personal horizons, build leadership skills, and promote active civic engagement through service projects at various sites along their route, and it requires PSU Capstone students to intentionally interact with younger persons to facilitate and catalyze these possibilities for growth in them.





Required time commitment:

You’ll participate in an orientation and training session on June 18-20,

then serve as a counselor on one of these road trips:

June 30-July 11

July 16-27

August 1-12

and, finally, join in a final group celebration in mid-August




This Capstone requires instructor approval.
