The Program

Elon Adventures in Leadership is an outdoor experience of hiking, camping, climbing, group initiatives, and white-water rafting offered only to incoming Elon students. The program will aid you in developing leadership skills, understanding community, working in teams, and building lasting friendships. It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about yourself in a natural world and helps you make the transition into your first year.

Check out the staff, what you should bring, the dates and timeline, and the list of our most frequently asked questions. You can also look at pictures and read comments from years past!

And remember, Adventures in Leadership is not a survival experience; it is designed for people with all levels of outdoor experience -- beginners and experienced campers are welcome! 

The Summer 2017 program dates are:
Week 1: July 16-21
Week 2: July 23-28
