التوجه البرية

يقع Wilderness Orientation في قلب رحلة استكشافية لمدة ثلاثة أسابيع في الجبال الصحراوية النائية وأودية ولاية أريزونا. 

لا تحتاج إلى أن تكون الرحال من ذوي الخبرة أو المنفتح للحصول على تجربة توجيه ناجحة ؛ تحتاج فقط إلى شعور المغامرة والاستعداد لبناء مجتمع تعليمي شامل.

Students on Wilderness Orientation develop a sense of place and make connections to the Southwest through backcountry travel, map and wilderness navigation, and by studying the natural and cultural history of their route.  Much of the course is focused on building a foundational community by honing interpersonal communication skills and practicing compassion and respect for each other and the landscapes we travel through. Students will also engage in individual research projects, a solo experience, leadership training, and service projects as part of this truly interdisciplinary Liberal Arts course.  Additionally, Wilderness Orientation satisfies the foundational field prerequisite that students will need for field-based courses. Enrollment is dependent on Orientation Director approval. 

التوجه المجتمعي

يمكن للطلاب أيضًا اختيار الالتحاق بالتوجيه المجتمعي بتنسيق غير خارجي في المدينة.  

On Community-Based Orientation, students will explore the concept of Community via interdisciplinary lenses.  Through connecting with the greater Prescott Community, students will develop cultural awareness and critical thinking tools to decolonize their education.  Students will complete individual research projects, service learning opportunities, day hikes, field trips, and a possible solo experience, to develop a sense of place and explore the ecological, political, and cultural histories of their new home.

أسئلة شائعة - تعرف على المزيد حول Wilderness Orientation at Prescott College

Wilderness Orientation is a 3-week backpacking expedition that is also your first college class.  Orientation is required at Prescott College. في Wilderness Orientation ، تقوم بممارسة مهارات القيادة ومهارات البلد الخلفي ، وتنفيذ مهارات بناء المجتمع ، والحصول على مقدمة عن Prescott College philosophies and practices.  Assignments include: Building an academic portfolio in the field, keeping a natural history and cultural history log, group discussions, delivering research-based presentations to your peers, filling group leadership and expedition roles, and a solo experience.

All incoming resident undergraduate students are required to successfully complete Orientation - this includes transfer students and first year college students.  Students may choose to complete Wilderness Orientation or Community-Based Orientation. Additionally, Wilderness Orientation is a prerequisite for all field-based courses. This means that your Orientation course will be made up of a diverse group of students - first year students,  transfer students, students with different academic and extracurricular interests. This is the point! We want to build community across the college and we start with Orientation.

معظم المدربين التوجه البرية هم من خريجي Prescott College الذين يعودون للعمل كمدرسين في Wilderness Orientation ويقدمون جيلًا جديدًا لمجتمع الكلية. Instructors of Wilderness Orientation must be Wilderness First Responder certified and have professional experience in outdoor education and/or outdoor guiding.  Most groups will also have a student instructor. This is a current student, usually a senior or junior Adventure Education competence, who is taking an upper division practicum course as part of their academic work.  These students must go through an application process and meet the upper division course prerequisites. All staff, unless otherwise exempt, attend staff training which includes an in-field portion in the fall.

There are detailed gear lists you can find here.  There are different gear lists for Fall Orientation and Winter Orientation. Please make sure that you bring the required gear on the first day of Orientation.  During the prep week in-town, instructors will go over each student’s gear to ensure that they are prepared for the expedition.

Backpacking gear can be expensive!  If you can’t afford all or any of the gear on the list, don’t worry!  We have loaner gear for you to use for free. We work on an honor system.  We ask that you go through the list and bring all of the gear that you have to the first day of Orientation and we will figure out the rest together.  And, we also ask that if you can afford the gear, or if you can borrow gear from friends or family, you do that before using the gear we have to ensure that those who need to borrow the gear can do so easily. 

Wilderness Orientation routes take you all over Arizona.  Depending on the time of year, you might be exploring a series of breathtaking canyons on the Mogollon Rim in Central Arizona, the desert mountains of the Superstitions in the Sonoran Desert, or the rugged beauty of the Grand Canyon.  All of our routes are designed to accommodate those new to backpacking.

Although Wilderness Orientation requires physical ability, you don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy the experience.  It is smart to prepare for Wilderness Orientation to aide in your successful completion of the course. Some ideas to get ready for Orientation include: Hiking on trails, biking on trails or on the road, running, working out in the gym, and swimming.  Groups usually hike 3-6 miles/day, but some days may be very short and others may be very long. Additionally, terrain varies! You might be on a trail, in a creek, or off-trail in rugged desert terrain.

No problem! You don’t need to be an outdoorsy person or have experience in the Outdoors to be successful on Orientation.  We just ask that you come with a sense of adventure. Our experienced instructors will help you learn to live and travel safely and comfortably in the backcountry.

No problem! Though the container of Wilderness Orientation is a backpacking trip, the point is not to be an expert backpacker.  If you are a guide, really outdoorsy, and have tons of experience in the field, we ask that you come prepared to meet the challenges of being in a diverse group with a wide range of abilities and experiences.

Depending on your route, solo may be period of up to 3-nights and 3-days long that you spend camping by yourself in a designated spot with a personal tarp within hearing distance of your group. For some it can be challenging to spend this time alone; for others, they welcome the space to be away from their group.  Solo can be a time for introspection and for contemplation. Solo is also a time for rest and rejuvenation after many days of hiking and carrying a backpack.
