  • Participant scholarships to allow us to offer joint student alumni educational programs.
  • Paddling Center on Lake Carnegie to allow us to develop canoeing and kayaking programs.
  • A new Climbing Wall for the continuation of our rock climbing program.
  • Endowment to provide leader training to all students at minimal or no cost.
