Outdoor Adventure Program 2012

August 20-22

      Do you enjoy being adventurous, meeting new people, and being outdoors?  If so, then OAP is for you!  This program takes first-year students to the Pocono Mountains where they spend their time rafting down the Delaware River, playing paintball, riding the zip line, taking day and night hikes, and developing new friendships. Students will arrive on campus and drop off their belongings in their residence hall rooms before heading to the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) with their student trip leaders. While at PEEC, the students will be housed in guest lodges. All trips are led by experienced student leader coordinators.  This year students will participate in Paddle, Battle, and Adventure. On-line registration will begin on May 10, 2012. The cost of the trip is $417.00 per person.   No refunds issued after June 30, 2012.

"I have never met a greater group of people, or ever thought that I would adjust to school so easily because of this trip." Mary Rita Bustin
"Going on the trip was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The very first two people I met at pre-orientation are still my best friends at Lehigh, and I realize how helpful it was to see familiar faces around campus even before school started." Alyssa Levy
