Wilderness Explorers Pre-Welcome 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 Ferrata 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!
