Program Details

Want to make new friends, build a community and explore the wild side of Montana? Join the Outdoor Recreation Program on Expeditions MSU, a five-day, four-night journey to explore and engage with fellow incoming students as you experience the natural wonders of Montana. Student trip leaders will share some ways in which to maximize your MSU and Bozeman experience as you backpack in the Spanish Peaks, explore the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, or retrace Lewis and Clark’s Canoe Journey on the Upper Missouri River. You will learn skills to help navigate both the wilderness and the college environment through a fun and challenging group experience.

This program is catered specifically to incoming first-year students and is designed to be an incredible community-building outdoor experience. Groups are purposely kept small: groups are made up of no more than ten students plus 2-3 trip leaders. No experience is necessary to participate. No matter what outdoor background you have, we encourage you to register, all you need is a positive attitude!

Block 1 Expedtions Trips are prior to the first summer on campus orientation. The total cost is $450 which includes all food, transportation, and gear. Scholarships are available for all of these programs.

Your group will head to the Upper Missouri River and follow in the footsteps and paddle strokes of the great explorers Lewis and Clark. Canoe camping allows you to access remote terrain without carrying everything for camp on your back! You'll eat well and enjoy lots of on and off water games and opportunities for reflection. Canoes also create a great opportunity to connect with someone over a long day of paddling together, and they demand some serious teamwork! You can expect to see lots of wildlife and there will be an opportunity for side hikes to stretch your legs during the day. You'll learn how to travel and camp responsibly in an important and historic river corridor.
