Outdoor Recreation

The Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC), located in the Adventure Recreation Center, is committed to providing fun, challenging and affordable wilderness-based experiences for The Ohio State University community. Through a variety of workshops and backcountry trips, participants will learn the requisite skills to safely enjoy the outdoors. Whether you want an exciting recreational activity, a chance to learn new skills, the opportunity to meet new people or simply to take a break from academics, the OAC is for you!

Please Note: The OAC is currently open for top rope climbing, Tope Rope Belay Tests, bouldering and the campus board. Additional activities including lead climbing, equipment checkout and trips will be added as we increase staffing levels.
