Building Outdoor Leaders at Duke

Our Mission

To provide high-impact outdoor leadership experiences that promote personal transformation, interdependence, and a deep appreciation for the power and beauty of the natural world.

Foundation involves acquiring and developing necessary fitness and safety skills for outdoor trips. Weekly workouts, Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training and additional information sessions help  participants get ready for Cornerstone.


Cornerstone expeditions are short overnight camping trips to the mountains of North Carolina.  Outdoor, leadership and team building skills are developed through these trips while helping prepare members for Keystone expeditions.


Keystone expeditions are typically high-altitude climbs, backpacking trips or other outdoor activities in Central and South America.  These are demanding opportunities that require participants to push their physical and mental boundaries.
