LEA Intensive: Adventure Week!

June saw La Europa in the middle of one of our 4 annual intensives – Adventure Week!  It was exciting, exhausting and exhilarating!

The festivities kicked off on Monday with a hike up to Utah’s Ensign Peak, which rewards with a killer view.  Students then got to compete as teams in the LEA Amazing Race at Historic Wheeler Farm – what a blast!  That night we brought back Extreme Karaoke for some stunning performances and great laughs!

Tuesday we got to spend the day rappelling with lunch in the great outdoors, and then rested and packed up for Wednesday’s big adventure. The whole group headed down to Zion National Park to spend some time seeing the iconic red rock of southern Utah. We got in some great hikes, tent camping, dinner over the fire.  On the way home, we stopped at Candy Mountain Resort for a guided white water rafting trip.  An excellent foray into the Wild West’s Wilderness.

Our final day was spent up in Park City, at Utah Olympic Park.  We got to zipline down the mountain, see some Olympic history, try a Challenge course and zoom down the mountain on the Alpine Slides, plus of course, a relaxing lunch watching professional skiers practicing jumps!  What an incredible week!
