SCOOP Adventure Challenge


Come join us for a Pre-Orientation that will get you outside doing some ropes course challenges, kayaking, paddleboarding, chilling and white-water rafting.

You will be staying at Camp Fowler in a bunk house with beds (linens not provided; bring a sleeping bag). This will be a trip that will help facilitate new friendships, so enjoy every minute of it. The days are packed with adventure, while the nights are for relaxing around the campfires eating smores!
