Wilderness Explorer Pre-Welcom Week Program
Come join us for an adventure that begins by traveling from
Butler to Brown County, IN, where you will camp, canoe, get to know
your trip members and experience an awesome Zip Line Canopy Tour!
After a fun morning of zipping around the tree tops, you will then
load up and travel to Morengo Cave National Landmark in southern
Indiana. Once there you will experience the wonders of caving
through a Cave Crawl and walking tour. After exploring the
underground you will then travel to Red River Gorge, KY where you
will have the opportunity to hike and camp in the Natural Bridge
State Park followed by a climbing adventure at the Via Earetta
located at Torrent Falls Climbing Adventure. One the final day of
your trip, you will travel back to campus to experience Butler's
Challenge course. Each of you will have the opportunity to
establish a community and lasting friendships!
