High Mountain Institute Gap Year Programs

ADVENTURE WITH PURPOSE

With gap year programs traveling through Patagonia and the American West, students embark on an incredible journey to some of the world’s wildest places to pursue rock climbing and wilderness adventures.

In all of the places we travel, students examine conservation issues, combining intellectual inquiry with hands-on service.

By living and traveling with a small group of peers and instructors, students develop valuable leadership skills, the ability to work effectively in a team, and a broadened perspective on the world.
