Outdoor Pursuits - Cold Feet and Even Colder Water

Mar 19, '21

Of the many sports offered at Brentwood, Outdoor Pursuits (ODP) is, in my experience, the most unique. Led by Mr Norman, who is often accompanied by Ms Wolinsky, Ms West and his son, Jacob, ODP is full of fantastic and varied experiences.

Seas the Day!

At Brentwood, Saturdays are usually spent in academic classes, followed by an hour or two of athletic activity, and then free time. Not so, however, for students in Outdoor Pursuits this past weekend!
