*A note on the physical aspect of the program: Due to the nature of the fieldwork that you will conduct on this program, you will spend most days outdoors in intense sunlight. At the beginning of the program, you will walk on average 5 miles a day. After three days of field work and lots of activities, there will be a couple of days of lighter physical activity, followed by several days of more intense activity. In addition to the walking, students will also hike sand dunes. The second half of the program will not require as much endurance.
