CBU Outdoor Adventures program hosts “glamping trip”
Riverside, Calif. (April 12, 2017) – A group of students and staff from California Baptist University got some much needed R & R before the start of finals at the San Onofre State Beach through the Outdoor Adventures program.
The outdoor excursion was run through the CBU Community Life department on April 7-9. The program provides opportunities for students to enjoy natural wonders such as prestigious national parks, popular mountain ranges and the iconic beaches of the Pacific coast. Thirty-eight CBU students and seven staff members participated in the latest outdoor adventure.
Tucker Carl, program coordinator – outdoor adventures, said the outing was promoted as a “glamping trip.”
With the end of the semester approaching, the trip was focused on relaxation, Carl said. The group played games, sat around the campfire and enjoyed more “glamorous” food than regular camp food— including a pig roasted on a spit for a luau-type dinner.
“The Southern California beaches are a world-renowned thing,” Carl said. “Giving students the opportunity to go and to go glamping and enjoy each other’s company and create community is why we’re offering a trip like this.”
Grace Barnes, an early childhood studies major, went on the trip to experience camping and meet new peers.
“I loved meeting everyone and playing games,” Barnes said. “All the other students were really cool and it was fun to get to know each of them.”
