Wilderness expeditions are the backbone of the HMI Semester

All experience levels are welcome, as students arrive at HMI with varied wilderness backgrounds–the key to success is bringing the willingness to laugh, learn, and take risks. Five weeks on expedition each semester, serve to teach backpacking and leadership skills, and to enrich our academic curricula. The progression of our wilderness expditions is outlined below and provides insight into the beautiful places we explore during an HMI Semester.
