Wisconsin Basecamp

Your Adventure Starts Now!

New Student Wilderness Orientation Trip

Hey new Badgers! Ready for an adventure this summer that gets you ready for life on campus? Wisconsin Basecamp offers summer outdoor wilderness orientation trips to connect you with a small community of other new students.

You'll be challenged in ways both obvious and unexpected – from overcoming the physical demands of canoeing, backpacking or climbing to making new friends and growing in ways you never imagined possible.

Basecamp isn't just about getting out into nature. It's about finding your independence, getting to know people and addressing questions and concerns about life on campus, including:

  • Your New Home: Dorm life and the people you’ll meet
  • Academic Success: Balancing class with out of classroom opportunities
  • Managing Your Fears: Addressing worries and discussing possible solutions
