Transfer Student Adventure Sampler (MOAT)
Tue, 4 Jun 2013 5:30 PM - Fri, 7 Jun 2013 12:00 PM
MOAT is a 3-day adventure-based orientation program. These student-led backpacking, canoeing, and rock climbing trips begin at 5:30 pm. For your convenience, trips are scheduled to start after Summer Springboard, however, matching your orientation date to MOAT is not required. You will meet your leaders and other participants and spend the night at the University Recreation Center before heading out on your MOAT trip the next morning. The MOAT experience is designed to give you an opportunity to build social connections with other trip members and introduce you to the amazing local natural areas surrounding Harrisonburg. All trips will involve primitive camping (no showers) and do not require any previous experience. The cost for the MOAT trip is $225.00 and includes instruction, leadership, equipment, and meals.
June 4-7: Transfer Student Adventure Sampler
This trip is designed for you to meet other new transfer students who share your interest in adventure activities. We will be camping at a camp ground in the George Washington national Forest for this adventure sampler. The site has bathroom facilities but no showers. This will allow us to travel by van to various local locations for our daily activities. Activities for this week include canoeing, rock climbing, and hiking. This trip will give you a preview of the amazing outdoor recreation resources that surround JMU. Fitness Demands: Mild (You should be able to hike 5 miles in 3 hours).
