Students gain skills needed to take trips into the wilderness and build confidence to lead others on adventures as part of Webb's unique Outdoor Program. Classroom instruction and outdoor trips combine to provide students hands-on experience. Many students develop a love of nature and the outdoors at Webb and make it a lifelong passion.

Along with weekend group trips throughout the year, Winter Freeze and Spring Break adventures test students’ skills. Senior Survival, a weeklong backpacking trip ending the day before graduation, is the final bonding experience for each class that makes lasting memories.

W.I.L.D. Class

Wilderness Instruction and Leadership Development or W.I.L.D. is an exciting program that combines the classroom with the outdoors. W.I.L.D. is an academic class that includes book discussions about camping and leadership. The class also uses experience gained from the outdoors and Outerlimits activities such as camping, canoeing, backpacking, rock climbing, and multiple others to teach the skills needed to attend and to lead trips into the wilderness.

Through instruction in class, on trips, and in different workshops, W.I.LD. members gain skills needed to take trips into the wilderness. These skills include planning, packing and carrying equipment from single day trips to multi-day trips, using outdoor equipment, building campfires, and using stoves to cook in the outdoors. Some of the workshops the class will attend are Wilderness First- Aid and Ropes course Safety and Operation.
