SEMR 1751 SWOOP Outdoor Orientation Program

1 credit
The heart of the SWOOP experience is a four-day wilderness backpacking experience that will take place on the Foothills Trail. The Foothills Trail is a 77-mile trail that traverses wilderness sections of northwest South Carolina and reaches a few places into North Carolina. The section that SWOOP will cover is approximately 33 miles. Backpacking in mountains is a strenuous activity. Therefore, in order to qualify for the course, participants must be able to carry a 30-pound pack over uneven terrain. Further, participants must have medical clearance to participate (think a sports physical). Additional course fee of $300 is required.
