“This trip enhanced college experience by revitalizing the belief that college does not have to be all about studying and class. There are opportunities to learn real life team-building skills through programs like outdoor adventure. I learned so much new technical information about climber safety with an enjoyable group. Great trip!” Camp and Climb Trip Participant
