Join us!
Alumni Roadtrip: Rockbridge
April 24 - 25, 2020

Our inaugural Adventure Weekend will be packed with outdoor activities, including paddling the James River, mountain biking, hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains and reliving some of our favorite W&L memories from the Outing Club. This weekend is geared towards adventure-loving, active adults who are ready to roll up their sleeves, sweat and even camp over night!

All activities begin at the moderate difficulty level, and space is limited to 25 alumni. We can't wait to reunite with our Outing Club leaders as we return to some of our favorite outdoor haunts!

  • Equipment for paddling (kayak, paddle, lifejacket)
  • Equipment for biking (mountain bike, helmet)
  • Snacks and lunch on Friday and Saturday
