Discovery, offered by New Student & Transition Programs, is a week-long adventure in the outdoors that will enable you to discover new friendships while building your teamwork and leadership skills. The trip is designed for students with little to no camping experience and those who have been camping for years. The program begins by familiarizing you with campus and then moves to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where new friendships begin and outdoor skills are developed. During Discovery, you will hike the Appalachian Trail, spend two days serving the community of Luray, canoe the white water of the Shenandoah River and tour local natural attractions. Sign up here to participate in this experience!
