First-Year Wilderness Experience (FWE)
Explore Isle Royale National Park – Backpacking
7-Day Trip: 8/28/22-9/3/22
Join us this summer as we explore and adventure through Isle Royale National Park. We will start with a ferry ride to the island and then spend the week backpacking from one end to the other taking in the beautiful scenery along the way.
FWE is an adventure-based program designed specifically for first-year students. It is a great way to meet likeminded folks before starting your first semester at UW-Stout.
**No prior backpacking experience is necessary; however, individuals must be active and able to walk 10-15 miles per day.
The cost of the trip is $695 and includes 2 trip leaders, transportation, ferry tickets, lodging, meals, and all necessary equipment.
