SOAR New River Gorge


Adventures in Fayetteville, WV

Summer 2019 - Trips for Rising Sophomores Only (students who just completed their freshmen year). 

Adventure West Virginia will be running two sophomores trips that take place in West Virginia. These two trips will be exclusive for rising sophomores at WVU. Unlike SOAR, these adventures are not-for-credit and only 6 days long. As a trip for rising sophomores, the content of the experience focuses on reflection after one's first year in college, and looking forward in hopes of growth and excellence in the upcoming upperclassmen semesters. 

Trips include: an overnight whitewater rafting experience, climbing at the New River Gorge, various scenic hikes in the Fayetteville area, and overall exploration of all the town has to offer. Participants will be base-camped at River Expeditions for the duration of the adventure
