In each of these exciting trips, students will spend two and a half days exploring the very best of New England's natural beauty. Students take day trips to various locations in the area and sleep on campus at night. It's all of the fun of camping while still sleeping in your newly made bed!

Joining the Amherst community also means becoming a student of the land we live on. These LEAPs are opportunities to meet local wonders that are close enough for you to visit throughout your time at Amherst! None of these trips require any prior experience in order to fully participate. Alongside your classmates, you will learn new skills to help you become more adept at living harmoniously with our wondrous landscape.
