Find answers to your questions below. What if I have never been camping before? That’s great! No prior experience necessary. This trip is designed to be an introduction to our lovely Colorado Rocky Mountain backyard. Leaders will be present to teach essentials and to help all participants feel confident participating in trip activities. Do I need to get in shape for the trip? Do I have enough time to do this? Adventure activities are physically demanding. We do our best to design our program to meet the needs of individuals who have minimal experience in the outdoors. However, if you are usually inactive we would encourage you to begin a moderate level of exercise in preparation of the program such as: walking, jumping jacks, or bike riding on a daily basis. What is the food like? We will be cooking at the campsites and you will be helping to create the meals. If you have any allergies or special needs, please indicate them on the registration form. Where are we sleeping? We will be camping in tents! Tents will be provided by the Regis Outdoor Adventure Program, but you will need to bring a sleeping bag and a sleeping pad to keep you warm and dry. If you don’t have these items one you can borrow them from OAP. There will be fabulous showers and toilets in the woods, right? Actually...no. Showers will be available when you return to campus. What should I pack? A packing list and other additional information for the trip will be emailed to you once you are registered for 1st Tracks. Do I need to have the latest and greatest gear? Definitely not. This is a car-camping trip designed for both people with outdoor adventure experience and those without. The included equipment list should give you a decent idea of what you need to bring. OAP has a number of items available to borrow, but you must reserve ahead to use this equipment!! If you need other equipment, consider looking at second-hand stores to find bargains. Is there a limit to how much stuff I can bring? Our vans are not huge. Please limit yourself to one bag. Please stick as much as possible to the list provided. You will be happier not having to lug so much gear all over and your team will be happier because there will be room in the van for their things too! What is all this I keep hearing about the high altitude? Denver is the mile-high city, and we will be leaving it and heading into the mountains, at an even higher altitude. At this high of an altitude, the sun shines very directly and harshly - sunscreen is an absolute necessity. Additionally, it is easy to become dehydrated so you need to be careful to drink a lot of water. Some people can feel sick when adjusting to a high altitude, but most people who hydrate should feel fine. If you have more questions about this, just contact us! When should I arrive? You need to arrive on campus between 11:00 a.m. - 2 p.m. on August 18th and not before, the earlier you arrive to 11:00 a.m. the better. We will be meeting in the Atrium of Clarke Hall on campus. You will be able to move into your room when we return from 1st Tracks on August 22nd unless you pay the additional $20 early move-in fee. Please don't bring your stuff to move into your room when you arrive for 1st Tracks, please arrange to have all of your belongings come to campus when you return. ALL other new freshmen not attending 1st Tracks will be moving in the next day, on August 23rd for the start of orientation. How do I get to Regis from the airport? One shuttle will be offered from the Denver International Airport (DIA) to Regis University at 1:00 p.m. on August 18th. Please schedule plane arrival prior to the shuttle times. If you are not ready to depart DIA by 1:00 p.m., you will be responsible for your own transportation to Regis. Please be sure your flight arrives before 12:15 p.m. to allow ample time for getting luggage and meeting up with the shuttle. To reserve a spot, contact Allison Jussel at email@example.com or 303-458-4316. If you would like to make your own arrangements there are a number of taxi and shuttle services that are available. To find a list of them go to www.flydenver.com. Super Shuttle tends to have the best pricing.
