Details: Join us on a week-long adventure rafting, camping, and hiking through the beautiful Yosemite National Park! Yosemite was one of our first National Parks and provides spectacular views of the gorgeous glacial-cut granite walls and serene grassy meadows with countless waterfalls. This trip starts off with an adventure filled two-day white-water rafting excursion down the Tuolumne River that you won’t want to miss out on! The trip continues with camping in Yosemite Valley and day hiking. Opportunities are endless to enhance cultural and historical appreciation of this extraordinary National Park. Students will also learn and apply the basics of outdoor leadership, stewardship, and environmental responsibilities through Leave No Trace principles. Come along for the adventure and create long lasting friendships with us!


Student trip member expectations: 

Our hope is that each trip member will commit to making a positive contribution to our group of 15. We will travel as one group and share the work as one collective team. Although we strive to cater to the needs of each participant, at times, the trip leaders will need to make decisions based on the needs of the group—not the special needs of one individual. This is a team experience, and everyone will be expected to help with all camping tasks such as setting up and tearing down camp, cooking meals, organizing gear. The CSUSM Outdoor Adventures program is all about promoting a healthy social environment where everyone feels comfortable and is included in the process of becoming a close-knit group. If you are the independent type who would prefer a solitary experience our trip may not be the best match for you.

The white-water rafting portion of this trip requires that all participants know how to swim and are comfortable around fast-moving water. The river is expected to have class 3+ rapids which are classified as intermediate to advanced.

If you have any hesitation, concerns or questions about this Outdoor Adventure, please email the OA team prior to signing up for this trip.
