Wilderness Adventure is Colgate’s largest pre-orientation program. Between 125–150 first-year students will begin their Colgate experience by living and traveling in the wilderness with a small group of other first-year students and two or three highly trained student leaders.
Participants will work together to hike, paddle, climb, cave, bike, or sail through stunning New York wilderness. No previous technical or wilderness experience is needed
for any of our trips, just a willingness to have fun, learn, and meet new people.
