Authenticity. Dignity. Wonder.
Discover What's Yours.
Gap at Glen Brook offers a domestic gap semester in the fall and spring on a 250-acre campus in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire. We are a community of life-long learners, explorers, and individuals committed to the joys of simple living.
The focus of the program is to build our connections. We work with our bodies and our hands to tend to the farm, forest, and program facilities that make up our home. Learn to cook a whole foods meal from scratch, try your hand at woodworking, harvest the fruits of a growing season, and explore the New England wilds.
Finding roots and rhythms at Glen Brook, gap students have a unique chance to examine what it means to live well, and what it means to belong—to both a natural and a human ecosystem. A semester at Glen Brook is a transformative experience for change-makers thirsty for a life of purpose and adventure.
