Peak Experience was the ultimate sleepover for kids ages 10-12. In a unique program, forty children — roped together alpine-style — confronted the challenges of climbing Mt. Everest.
During an ‘ascent’ guided by wilderness and environmental medicine Jay Lemery, as well as Everest veterans and scientists, participants explored the many scientific aspects of mountaineering — from the medical and physiological demands placed upon climbers to the physics of mountaineering. No adults were permitted.
