The Outdoor Recreation Adventure Program (ORAP) funds and schedules outdoor excursions and activities, including weekend and day trips. In addition, a climbing wall is available to interested members of the HWS community during specified hours. ORAP maintains a rental center that offers a modest inventory of equipment for rent. The rental center is open on a part-time basis during the school year and employs students who are knowledgeable about outdoor equipment and experiences.
