BuckWild Dates: August 17-21, 2014. The 2014 Program included activies:

  • Roaring Creek Wilderness Basecamp (4 Trips):
    Enjoy a multi-element experience of hiking, biking, canoeing, and CLIMBucknell Challenge Course. For those that want more of a casual adventure!! 
  • Canoeing (1 Trip):
    This is a favorite of many, but we can only offer 1 canoeing experience and it fills quickly.  You will explore the Susquehanna River. The river's shore is shared with Bucknell University. One of the best ways to travel!
  • Rock Climbing and Caving (3 trips)
    Rock Climb for two days and experience caving in Central PA! One of our best trips!
  • Adventure Race (1 Trip):
    Enjoy friendly competition within an urban and backcountry setting! A trip that is not to be missed and pleasantly surprises those that participate on how much fun it really is!
  • Backpacking (1 Beginner, 1 Intermediate, and 1 Advanced):
    We offer mostly backpacking for BuckWild and we have all skill levels that will get to explore a variety of areas in Central PA.
  • Beginner Climbing and Backpacking (2 Trips) 
    Explore the scenic and historical Appalachian Trail and Rock Climbing with the climbing and caving crews!  Another top choice experience!
  • Ohiopyle State Park Basecamp (3 Trips):
    Enjoy a multi-element experience of rock climbing, white water rafting, and hiking.  This experience is in an area that locals call the HUB of Pennsylvania outdoor recreation.
  • CAFE Program (1 Trip)
    CAFE stands for Community Agricultural Food Expedition!  Outdoor Education & Leadership has partnered with Bucknell Office of Civic Engagement and the Lewisburg Community Garden to create an experience that reaches out to the local community, fosters growth, and leadership through civic engagement.   This is soon to be a favorite of those that enjoy rewarding work and a little outdoor adventure wrapped in one!!
