Basecamp WOOT

Format:

For each Basecamp WOOT Program there will be a series of 4 online sessions lasting 2 hours each followed by an Outdoor Adventure during Fall Quarter. During the online sessions you will have the time to connect and get to know your peers, participate in fun games and activities, develop a sense of belonging and connection, and begin to work on your own leadership and decision-making skills.


As the online sessions progress students will begin working with their Trip Leaders and fellow WOOTers in a consensus decision making process as the group moves into formulating their own outing during Fall Quarter based on the groups desired outcomes. Trips that students may come up with may include hiking, mountain biking, orienteering, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, and more!

(*It is important to note that trips may need to be modified or rescheduled based group travel requirements in response to COVID-19*)


Throughout the entire process groups will be able to maintain close contact whether this is online, in person, or a mix of both with all leaders and peers. This will allow for everyone to stay connected and engaged throughout their entire first year at WWU and beyond.


Oh yeah, and the best part, it's FREE to register!!


Students who attend all 4 of their online sessions of Basecamp WOOT will also be entered into a raffle for:

10 Free single day rentals on any (1) item from our Equipment Rental Shop during the 2020-21 Academic Year

5 Free Day Long Excursions during the 2020-21 Academic Year
