“Outdoor Adventure Club”

In this co-curricular club, I organize outdoor adventure activities. They include hikes around the area of The Great Wall (Beijing), which is also nicknamed “The Wild Wall.”     I mapped, scouted and planned routes that would be both safe and challenging for the students involved. I also opened the trips up to staff. I wanted to give them all the opportunity to experience “The Wild Wall” away from the areas redeveloped for tourism. I felt it was important to do this because although The Great Wall is a 2 hour drive North of Beijing, most students and staff only experience the urban side of the city.
