A brief description of the program:

The Green Mountain Adventure Programming Office (GreenMAP) provides outdoor programs. GreenMAP trips are free, student led outings open to the entire Green Mountain College community. Many of the trips require no prior experience, and student leaders are trained to teach all participants.

Examples of spring 2010 programs include:
1.Backcountry Skiing/Snowboarding/Snowshoeing Day Trip
2.Adirondacks Ice Climbing Day Trip
3.Kiteboarding and Backpacking on the Georgia Coast
4.Wilderness First Responder Training and Certification
5.Telemark Ski Clinic
6.Whitewater Kayaking
7.Sea Kayaking
8.ACA Essentials of Canoeing Course
9.Rock Climbing

Ice climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, tele-ski, rock climbing, and paddling equipment can be rented at any time for only $1 per day.

For entering students, GreenMap offers The Wilderness Challenge. This activity provides an excellent way for incoming students to meet new friends and learn more about the Green Mountain Community. The trips are led by trained student and staff leaders from the GreenMap Program. The trips take place in the mountains and waters that surround the college and make New England famous. With programs like backpacking, rock climbing, canoeing, sea kayaking & yoga, there is a "challenge" for every level of experience and interest.
