It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we will not be offering a pre-orientation wilderness program this year. We understand that these programs are a huge part in transitioning to life at Earlham, including college readiness, building connections with current faculty and students, and making lasting friendships. We are committed to finding ways to continue to support and welcome incoming first-year and transfer students to our campus and community and to finding ways to help them explore in the outdoors.

In light of COVID-19, Earlham has suspended all college-sponsored travel for the summer term to prioritize the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, and the communities we come into contact with along the way.
August Wilderness, our pre-orientation wilderness course with trips to the Uinta Mountains in Utah and Wabakimi Provincial Park in Canada, will not be offered this year.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and hope to be able to offer an alternative wilderness experience for incoming first-year and transfer students pre-orientation. This experience would occur the week before students are due to arrive on campus in a more local region. Announcements concerning pre-orientation wilderness opportunities will be posted here.
