Students at Hickory Run

Because of the remote nature of this wilderness experience, this program has been canceled for 2020.

Grab a paddle. Pitch a tent. Hike across boulders. Gear up for an outdoor adventure with BuckWild, a dynamic Pre-Orientation program that takes you into the beautiful Central Pennsylvania wilderness for five days of hands-on activities in the woods, on the river and beyond. 

Whatever excursion you choose, you'll connect with fellow first-years, meet mentors, learn about campus culture, build teamwork, enhance your leadership skills and broaden your perspectives as you build relationships in small-group settings. BuckWild is a great foundation of support for the rest of your time at Bucknell, and all levels of outdoor experience are welcome.
