NatureBridge's Armstrong Scholars Program is a backpacking adventure for teenage girls. Inspired by and in memory of former NatureBridge Field Educator Joie Armstrong, the Armstrong Scholars Program brings together young women, ages 15 to 18, for a truly empowering summer backpacking adventure in the High Sierra.
This extraordinary program seeks to inspire young women to reach their highest potential, develop a stronger sense of self and community, and explore their personal connection to nature. Participants venture into the backcountry of Yosemite National Park with highly skilled female NatureBridge staff, for an expedition of discovery, leadership, and personal challenge.
Visit the NatureBridge website at www.naturebridge.org for application materials. Twelve young women will be chosen based on the strength of their applications and the recommendations of supportive educators and community leaders. Participation is limited to insure a quality experience for everyone involved.
