Quotes from survival course students

‘Survival is a great course for AP students because it is the most sleep you will get all year.’


Arlington High senior

‘Each night there were at least 20 coyotes screaming all night long, walking within 20 feet of where I was sleeping. Every morning I could see their tracks. It was like an army of coyotes.’

‘I love talking to people. I love singing. So I thought, “I’ll talk to myself and I’ll go insane.” But I didn’t. It was just so quiet and peaceful, and I felt if I talked or sang, it would be like ­ruining the ­beautiful nature.’
