Registration will be available in mid-May once you have received your official BUID, email and password. (They are typically mailed during the first two weeks of May.) 

Your official Bucknell email address is *NOT* the email you created to fill out your Bucknell admissions application. It is a new official University email.

When you register, please select your top four trip choices. We will do our best to accommodate you with one of these experiences. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you will be placed in one of your top choices. All of them are great! The hardest choice is limiting to just four trip options! Register quickly to earn priority of your trip preferences. There is limited space for 165 participants and the spaces fill quickly. The deadline to register is July 10.

Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to our medical forms, waivers, etc. Please fill those documents out by the registration deadline.


The cost of the experience is $375 a person. This includes food, transportation, technical equipment, t-shirt, camping fees, and other fees associated with the different trip options.  

We do have some limited funding to help subsidize first-year students to help cover the cost of this pre-orientation program. Please apply and select the waiver format in the registration. Once we receive the waiver registration, we will reach out to explain the waiver process. This is limited and is earmarked for those in financial need.


If this activity is cancelled for any reason by Bucknell (i.e. weather, insufficient registration, etc.), you will receive a full refund.

If you must cancel, you must do so ON OR BEFORE July 10.

If you cancel after July 10,  you will be refunded IF we can find a participant to fill the vacated spot. If we are unable to find a participant you WILL NOT receive a refund.
