Does the institution have a wilderness or outdoors program that organizes hiking, backpacking, kayaking, or other outings for students and follows Leave No Trace principles?:

A brief description of the program:

The Gettysburg Recreational Adventure Board (GRAB) provides a wide variety of outdoor opportunities ranging from one day experiences to two-week trips that visit crags, waterways, caves, and trails from the mid-atlantic region to international locations. We promote exploration, education and respect for the natural environment through our small group experiences. We emphasize instruction and teaching while on our trips, rather than just guiding an experience. We want our participants to learn the skills necessary to enjoy the backcountry, so when they embark on their own adventures they have a foundation of ethical and sound Leave No Trace practices. Our trips are available to anyone associated with the Gettysburg College community--students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their family members.
