Wisconsin Basecamp

Where adventures start and connections are made!

Brand new to the University of Wisconsin-Madison? Wonder how to make such a big campus feel a little smaller? Anxious to meet other new Badgers and jumpstart your college experience this summer?

Wisconsin Basecamp is an outdoor orientation program where you will meet other new students, experience the great outdoors, and get some questions answered about college life in Madison before ever stepping foot on campus.

Registration is open and trips are filling up!
