About The Trek
On the UR FOOT canoeing trip, 6 Trekees will be traveling to Tupper Lake New York in the Adirondacks. Here you will be canoeing in an area where motor vehicles are not allowed, giving you the amazing opportunity to experience nature at its purest. The trip will be three days of canoeing, hiking, and camping on and near the crystal clear Tupper Lake. Since we will be on the water for the majority of the trip, the ability to swim is a must.  Camping or canoeing experience is preferred, but not necessary.

Trek Leaders

Hello there! I’m Alex Choy and I’ll be one of your trek leaders this year. I’m currently majoring in Biomedical Engineering, meaning I may get to make technology involving stem cells and biological regrowth one day. Coming from the state of DE, I’m pretty used to canoeing. Hopefully you are too, but if not, no worries. We are sure to have a lot of fun this trip. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends before school even begins. Seeya this fall!

Hey, guys! My name is Kaileigh and I’m a rising sophomore from a tiny ski town in New Hampshire. As a freshmen, I went on the canoeing trip and now I’m psyched to be able to lead it this year! Here at U of R I am a microbiology major, on the varsity lacrosse team, and part of a sorority named Kappa Delta. In my free time (or whatever is left) I love to be outside adventuring. Some of the craziest things I’ve done are lava-tube caving in Iceland and having snowball fight on a volcano! If you want to have a blast, come canoeing with us!!! URFOOT was the best decision I could have made! Go canoeing, though. Canoeing is the most lit!

Hi! My name is Wesley (or Wes, like Wes Anderson) and I’ll be helping to lead canoeing this year. I’m a rising junior from the lovely land of Buffalo NY, and a Neuroscience major. I’m also a Safe Zone trainer, a Teaching Assistant (PSY 101/181), and an employee at Strong Memoroal Hospital. My two greatest passions are jazz and vegetables, but URFOOT isn’t far behind. I had an awesomr experience on Day Treks my freshman year, and can’t wait to show you guys an even better time on this incredible trip.
