All trips are led by University of Redlands student leaders, with support and direction from administrators, faculty and staff. These folks are enthusiastic, experienced, and invested in your success on FYJ and as a student at Redlands! Each trip has two leaders, with Wilderness and Front Country trips having at least one leader as a certified as a Wilderness First Responder.
A Note About Choosing your FYJ
College is full of new experiences, and FYJ is a great place to begin your adventure! When considering trip options and indicating your preferences on your application, we encourage you to try something new that may push your comfort zone. Our FYJs do not require previous experience, and while some offer greater physical challenges than others, our leaders, faculty, and guides are here to help support you through those challenges.
We have re-designed our trips to prioritize student health and well-being. We will be continuing to follow CDC, Federal, State, and Local guidelines along with the policies of the University of Redlands, and as they change, trips may adjust accordingly. We are fortunate that Outdoor Programs typically follows best practices (outside locations, small groups, physical distancing, etc.), and we are using this time to review and adapt our program to best prepare for you to join us in August!
