Alaska
July 13 - 24, 2018

Outdoor Adventures is running a 12 day multi-sport Alaska expedition this summer, July 13 - 24. This will be a life changing opportunity for you to experience wilderness first hand in a way that is not possible anywhere else on earth. You will come away with a new appreciation of the awesome power and fragile nature of life on our planet and will have the chance to experience something totally unique.

In the spring semester, we will have a series of meeting to let everyone get to know each other and become comfortable with all the logistics and requirements for the trip. No experience is needed, but students must be able to swim and have a sense of adventure.

Everyone will meet at BC and get a shuttle to Logan where you will fly to Anchorage Alaska. Once in the 49th state, we will spend 12 days kayaking, rafting, backpacking, camping, and exploring this amazing location. We will be camping in a variety of locations some will be campgrounds with access to bathrooms and showers while others are remote wilderness camps with nothing around for miles.

Registration is available at recconnect.bc.edu. 

Yellowstone National Park 
Backpacking 
June 2 - 7, 2018
Price $500 does not include flight.  Must meet in Bozeman by 4 pm on June 2.

America’s 1st National Park, Yellowstone is a special place. Teeming with wildlife this photogenic landscape is the epitome of wilderness. As we hike through forests and tundra we may see bison, elk, and bears. Carrying all our expedition supplies on our back we will make camp out under the stars getting away from it all and experiencing all the splendor of nature. 

Grand Teton National Park 
Kayaking 
June 9 - 14, 2018
Price $500, does not include flight.  Must meet in Jackson Hole by 5 pm on June 9.

In mid June the high peaks of the Tetons will still be shrouded in snow. Instead of tramping through the snow we will be gliding over the crisp waters of Jackson Lake. Each day we will wake up to granite peaks jutting out of the prairie and after packing up our boats we will paddle along with spectacular views and awesome adventure. 

Maine Appalachian Trail 100 Mile Wilderness 
Backpacking 
July 24 - August 3, 2018
Price $400 includes transportation to and from BC.

Maine’s 100 mile wilderness is perhaps the the most iconic section of the legendary AT. Our fantastic instructors will hike with you through this wild landscape where you may see moose feeding in a trail side pond, an eagle soaring overhead, or just bask in the stillness on the north woods. This is a strenuous hike but it is very much worth it!
