Expeditions MSU - Block 5: Loading Price...

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