Outdoor Adventure Trips

Trips are open to students and Recreational Sports members. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in an adventure trip. Our intention is to provide powerful group building experiences that help participants develop new friendships, learn lifelong wilderness skills, develop leadership qualities, increase interpersonal skills and expand appreciation and concern for the environment.

Trained student or professional staff lead all weekend adventure trips. Prices for these activities include program-specific equipment, transportation, food, camping fees and required permits unless other arrangements are specified in the program description.
