Immersion in a wilderness setting is an important component of the Adirondack Semester, and our program site is a pristene example of a uniquely Adirondack wilderness. The semester is based at Arcadia, a yurt village in a nearly 4,000 acre conservation easement in the northwestern part of the Park. The village is nestled on the shores of Lake Massawepie, a 750 acre lake that is the centerpiece of the property. Arcadians forego running water, computers, cell phones, and many other modern ammenities in exchange for a slightly slower pace to life, which allows usto connect more deeply with their home and the small community we are a part of. We carry our own water, we make our own music, and we cook our own food. Simple is beautiful.
