A B.A. in Outdoor Education set the stage for a successful and adventure-filled career for alumnus Phil Branca ’04. Since graduating, he has been leading wilderness expeditions for wilderness therapy, adventure travel and outdoor education organizations in the remote areas of more than 15 states. Recently, Phil worked for the National Outdoor Leadership School leading custom training expeditions in Alaska for the US Naval Academy.
While Phil still runs a handful of trips out west each year, you’re most likely to find him teaching Adventure Education for the Laraway School in Johnson, VT, and making part-time faculty appearances at Johnson and Lyndon State Colleges in his home state of Vermont.
