New Student Trips (OATS)

On A Trail Somewhere…

Congratulations on your recent acceptance to UC Berkeley! Not only have you made a great decision in a university, but by visiting this site, it seems you are about to make a great decision in joining a Cal Adventures O.A.T.S. trip. This is a great opportunity to meet other first year and transfer students before the semester begins.

Whether you’re someone who spends all your free time outdoors or someone who has never slept under the stars, O.A.T.S. is for you! You’ll learn wilderness camping skills and have the chance to challenge yourself both mentally and physically while meeting some great new friends.


ATTENTION CalSO participants! Interested in extending your visit to Berkeley this summer and exploring the outdoors with Cal Adventures? Book one of our backpacking trips immediately following your CalSO Program. Use the links below to learn more!
