SFI YOUTH WILDERNESS EXPEDITIONS APPLICATION
As a participant in SFI’s Youth Wilderness Expeditions you will learn to live in the backcountry, evaluate your relationship with the environment, get in good shape, and develop friendships. Expect the program to be exhilarating! You will have plenty of opportunity to learn about yourself and wild places as you embark on a mentally, physically, and emotionally challenging journey.

We will be running 5 treks this year with up to twelve students and three experienced wilderness guides on each trip (see dates below). A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Scholarships will be awarded to applicants that write a letter (or e-mail) explaining their financial need; this letter should be e-mailed or mailed to youthprograms@thesfi.org or P.O. Box 207 Selma, OR 97538. We will only award scholarships to students that have submitted a completed application, a letter of intent for scholarship, AND all medical clearance paperwork (which will be e-mailed to you after receiving your application).

Instruction: Fill out this application completely. You are asked both general and personal questions as a part of the application. This gives us a chance to get a sense of you as a person - and it gives you a chance to share about yourself, which is an important part of the program. Students are not chosen on the basis of their interests, grades or skills, but rather their desire to participate fully in the program.

If you have any questions or need help completing the application, feel free to call our youth programs office at 541-597-8530. Thanks! We look forward to receiving your application!
