Tech Treks Montana

This 9-day Montana Wilderness Adventure is designed to be a metaphor for entering the difficult academic rigor of The Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as the new frontier of life on your own. This adventure will challenge you to do your best and ask you to look inward.

Participants can expect to gain insight on how to succeed and flourish in the wilderness and also at Georgia Tech.

This expedition is led by Georgia Tech's highly skilled Adventure Education Coordinator and an experienced student trip leader. You will take away more than just memories of this amazing experience; you will bring home life-long friendships!
