Adventure WV First-Year Trips are peer-led, adventure-based experiences that prepare students for life at WVU. Trips offer participants diverse opportunities to meet other first-year students, learn about themselves and connect with WVU.
Participants on QUEST trips have the opportunity to sample an exciting array of adventure activities from a central, basecamp location.
Participants on EXPLORE trips will enjoy a smaller group experience, more time in the great outdoors, and a sense of challenge and accomplishment, while visiting some of the most popular places in West Virginia.
Participants on ODYSSEY trips will travel all around the great state of West Virginia, while trying their hand at some of the most outstanding adventure activities the state and surrounding area have to offer.
After a virtual year in 2020 and decreased capacity due to COVID in 2021, Adventure WV returned to close to full capacity for Summer 2022.
We are looking forward to expanding further for 2023.
We hope you will join us!
