Looking to finish up your summer strong? Look no further. The WSU Outdoor Program rafting trips promise big waves and big fun. We will leave campus mid-day Friday (exact time determined at pre-trip meeting) and head to camp near Jackson Hole, WY in time for a hearty camp dinner. Saturday we will hike and make two runs down the 8-mile Alpine Canyon section of the Snake River with rapids up to Class III. We'll head back to camp for dinner Saturday night, and then make a leisurely departure back to Ogden Sunday morning.

A Lasting Impact
Weber State values High Impact Educational Experiences (HIEEs). This event is designed to allow students to engage and form connections: with each other, with WSU staff and faculty, with the nature in the intermountain West. We hope that students who participate in the Student Snake River trip have the opportunity to engage with learning outcomes, such as *meaningful interactions, diverse and inclusive experiences, and personal investment.
