Program Description

Five weeks of backpacking and writing workshops in Colorado

During the HMI Summer Term, rising 10th, 11th, and 12th graders from across the country engage in a unique summer experience in the Rocky Mountains. They discover their best selves over two backpacking trips, exploring the reaches of their potential and how to lead others. Through a series of writing workshops, students find their voices, improve their prose, and gain experience with college-level writing, finally producing a polished essay that can be used for college applications or as a compelling personal statement.
