Why Do It? You’ll find majestic sea stacks, moss-covered ancient trees, sandy and rocky beaches, beautiful waterfalls, and see signs of shipwrecks that helped this area be known as the Graveyard of the Pacific. You will hike and enjoy camp life with other students and it will become one of the most memorable experiences you’ll ever have at school!
