Important LandSea 2020 Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision that LandSea will not take place in the Adirondacks in New York this summer. We do still plan to have LandSea in a basecamp format held closer to campus in Michigan. More details are to come.

Registration deadlines, payment amounts, and scholarship application deadlines will be revised. Registration for the LandSea program will be opened on June 1st. Scholarship applications will be due on June 15th. Paperwork and full payment will be due on August 1st. We thank you for your patience as we work to update our website over the coming weeks with more details.

LANDSEA: OVER 40 YEARS ON TRAIL

What is LandSea?

LandSea is an optional 18-day outdoor trip for Kalamazoo College students that occurs just before first-year orientation. In its 40-year history, more than 2,000 students have used LandSea as a way to acclimate to the College and build support networks before beginning the fall term.

LandSea Scholarships

Through the generous support of our alumni, need based scholarships are available!

In order to be eligible for scholarship consideration, students must register, deposit, and complete the scholarship application before May 15.

LandSea Leader Internship

Student leaders, selected from a group of highly competitive applicants, are the backbone of the LandSea program.

There are four types of trip leader positions available including BaseCamp, Expedition, and Logistics (must be over 21).
