The Outdoor Program

The Outdoor Program

The H. Adams Carter ’32 Outdoor Program was founded to honor the Milton graduate, teacher, and world-renowned mountaineer who, in 1947, founded the precursor to the Outdoor Program — the Ski and Mountaineering Club. Today’s Outdoor Program, directed by computer programming faculty member Kendall Chun, includes an after-school activity and a trip program. Students can rock climb, hike, paddleboard, sea kayak, and more. All day and weekend trips are free and open to all Upper School students.

What’s the Big Idea?

As Robert F. Kennedy ’44 observed, the best ideas—the most daring, and those that make the most profound impact on our world—spring from the minds of people who are unafraid to ask “Why not?” This issue highlights Milton graduates whose ideas are limitless, who challenge outdated assumptions, and who champion new approaches to old problems. On campus, students and teachers celebrate not only thinking but rethinking, and the powerful good that can be achieved when minds are nurtured, compassionate, and free.
