Whether you choose the Expedition or Experience, you are sure to have an unmatched excursion to discover more about yourself, your peers and FAU. Camp Owls is operated through Campus Recreation's Outdoor Adventure Program and is designed to help incoming freshmen make a smooth transition into college.
Group sizes on all trips have a limit of 8 - 10 students with two staff. Small group sizes allow for more interactions among group members. All participants are actively involved in daily chores, such as setting up tents, cooking and clean-up.
There are multiple choices offered at FAU for incoming freshmen. We hope you consider registering for Camp Owls, get outside your comfort zone, and challenge yourself through adventure!
Expedition trips are designed for students who want to grow in leadership, self-reliance and communication through a multi-day trip that trades modern conveniences for just the necessities. Expeditions occur during the summer and before fall semesters.
Experience trips allow students to learn more about FAU, meet new friends and have an adventure while staying in the front country and closer to home. Trips are located throughout Florida and occur the week before fall classes begin.
