Annual Events

Due to COVID-19, we are currently reviewing our traditionally in-person annual events. Below you will find the events that have been approved thus far. 
  • Camp with Us! This September we are revisiting our camping-on-campus event, geared towards those who wish to learn new skills in the outdoors in a familiar and accessible environment. At this event, participants learn the in's and out's of camping and beginner backpacking, while making meaningful connections along the way. To learn more, visit ExperienceWMU!
  • Leaders Unplugged One of the Office of Student Engagement's most popular retreat activities is our Leaders Unplugged backpacking trip happening this October. Whether you're an experienced hiker or have never slept in a tent before, backpackers of any level are welcome to spend a weekend with our trained professionals and student staff to learn the leadership lessons the outdoors can teach us. To learn more, visit ExperienceWMU.
 This page will be updated as more annual events become public.
