*Orientation Experiences: These are 5-7 day credit based programs for incoming West Virginia University students. There are also individual trips for incoming military veterans, transfer students, and a few major specific trips.
*Challenge Course: Our course is made up of various high and low ropes problem solving initiatives. Each of these elements is a tool which can be used by our facilitators to create an experiential learning opportunity. We work with your group to identify your needs and goals in order to build an effective and engaging program! Whether you are climbing 50 feet above the ground, or never leave it, the experience frames the learning for you and your group.
*International Trips: We offer 6-credit International Expeditions to New Zealand, Fiji, Peru, South Africa and Patagonia.
*Military Veterans Programs: As part of WVU’s commitment to making its campus military friendly, Adventure WV offers opportunities exclusively for WVU Military Veterans.
