Programs & Expeditions

The professional staff from the Office of Experiential Education and the student staff of the Gettysburg Recreational Adventure Board, are pleased to offer 45 programs and expeditions annually to the members of our campus community.

Students

Students are provided ample opportunities to participate on our programs. On any given week throughout the year, we sponsor at least one day hike, kayaking, or climbing trip for the campus. It only costs $5.00 for a full day of being off campus and enjoying the surrounding area. In addition, students can participate in WinterFest, Expeditions, and our Expedition Institute.

Parents & Alumni

Parents and alumni are provided at least two to three larger trips each year. Most programs are international treks, where your luggage is shuttled ahead each day while we hike, and the evenings are spent enjoying a wonderful meal and relaxing in very nice bed & breakfast or hotel.

Faculty & Employees

Faculty and employees are able to take full advantage of our services and programs. We offer our challenge course and the Den to compliment the classroom experience and assist with professional development opportunities. We provide our colleagues the ability to participate or assist on an expedition, as well as develop unique opportunities for a cohort of colleagues such as our sea kayaking program for faculty through the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching, or our annual Mountain Man Madness winter extravaganza.

Community

Whether you represent a club, school, group, or organization we welcome all surrounding community members to take advantage of our challenge course and our indoor climbing wall.  In addition, we provide a wide range professional development opportunities for individuals in the wilderness education field to companies looking for leadership experiences for their team. 

Please take a look at our programs for the upcoming year, and do not hesitate to contact us. We can easily be reached at grab@gettysburg.edu for any inquiries.
