The Northwoods Experience

Begin your Hiram Adventure here! Hiram College’s Northwoods Field Station and the surrounding beauty of northern Michigan’s remote wilderness provide a magnificent setting to begin your own Hiram experience.

The Northwoods Experience is a six-day adventure at Hiram’s Hiawatha Campus in northern Michigan. The goal is to enjoy the beauty of nature and build a sense of community with your future Hiram College classmates.

During our stay, we will immerse ourselves in the vast wilderness in and around the College’s rustic camp. Days will be filled canoeing, kayaking, hiking, swimming and reflecting. Field trips to stunning sandstone cliffs of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and crystal clear waters of Lake Superior are included!

Dates: August 15-21, 2014*         

* Begins the afternoon Participants will arrive to campus August 15 and move in to their residence hall. There will be a cookout in the evening. Early on the 16th, we depart for Northwoods. We will be returning to campus late on August 21 (first-year institute begins the following day).

Cost: $405 (includes lodging, all food, field trip fees, and transportation)
