Leadership and Landscape: The Camino de Santiago


About the Program

Spain is our classroom in this Honors summit experience course: a two-week backpacking trip on the Camino de Santiago, the famed thousand year-old pilgrimage route to the picturesque city of Santiago de Compostela. We'll focus our work on developing leadership skills and understanding group dynamics, as well as exploring the natural and cultural history of northern Spain and the Camino. Students will take on leadership roles, and be offered peer feedback on judgment and decision-making. Creative and critical writing and reading will complete our training. We'll conduct writing workshops in the field. In addition, we'll attend to experiences in solitude and in community, and make a point of exploring the flora, fauna, geology, weathers, archaeology, history, and culture of the region.

THIS COURSE MAY BE TAKEN FOR HONORS SUMMIT CREDIT. This course is open to EVHM majors and minors, and Honors students.
