Into the Wild
Help bring the students of SCU to the beautiful outdoors

Into The Wild is Santa Clara's completely student run outdoor club.  Each year we take over 1000 students all across California, ranging from Joshua Tree National Park to Yosemite National Park and everything in between.  This year our six Spring Break trips are taking over 70 students across the Southwestern US, backcountry skiing in Idaho, and backpacking on Kauai.  Into The Wild's mission is providing students, faculty, and staff with affordable, sober, and educational opportunities to explore and learn about the beautiful wilderness of California and beyond.  We strive to build communities on our trips that continue and last on campus, and can proudly say that many friendships and appreciation for nature has started with an Into The Wild trip.  

 

Gifts to Into The Wild will go directly towards making trips even more affordable for students and accessible to all.  It is our goal that eventually all Santa Clara students will join Into The Wild on a trip, and any donations will help us on our way to accomplishing that.

 

Though Into the Wild was not the sole reason I chose to come to Santa Clara, it was a determining factor in my college decision. Since coming to campus, Into the Wild has given me the opportunity to grow as a person of strength, compassion, and integrity. I have gone on adventures greater than I could have ever foreseen, and I have met people I trust and respect more than any others I have known. – Kirsten Dodroe, ‘20
