Hamilton students come from all over the world, and many live away from home for school. For these reasons, and many more, our registration is not 'first come first serve' but deadline based. This means that we cannot guarantee anyone a place until we get to June 15th, deadline day. What we can say, though, is that there have only been two years in the last 20 that we've turned anyone away, and that we don't expect to be over subscribed this year. So go ahead, make that summer family vacation booking.
All incoming first-year and transfer students receive access to the registration site in May, and all registration is online. If you happen to come across a link or pdf to an old AA registration form, please let us know so we can remove it.
This year's registration must be received by June 15. Confirmation will be mailed around June 23. In the highly unlikely event that Adirondack Adventure is oversubscribed, we will choose participants by lottery on June 17.
Once you've been accepted to the program, you will receive a packet with information and a health form, including which trip you're on. Complete the form and send it back to us by July 24th.
What equipment you need to bring depends on what trip you end up joining. Once we've contacted you to let you know which trip you're on, you can check the specific equipment requirements for that adventure. You can view the lists online by selecting one of the links below.
We found a nifty video on Youtube that tells you about fitting boots.
