  • NO REFUNDS will be issued for any reason, unless the trip is cancelled.  For more expensive trips, consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance that protects you from canceling for unforeseeable circumstances such as injury or illness.  We recommend Travel Guard.
  • Individuals must be present to sign up for trips. Friends/partners cannot sign someone else up.
  • Due to high demand, SO Members can sign up for only one multi-day Adventure and one single-day Adventure Program trip during member registration week. Registration after the first week is unlimited.
  • Stanford IDs will be checked by Outdoor Center staff to confirm memberships and Stanford affiliation.
  • Registration is on first come, first served basis.
  • Pre-trip meetings, if noted, are REQUIRED.

Adventure Program Trips

Unless otherwise noted, no previous experience is required for any of our trips and transportation is provided. Trips indicated as moderately to very strenuous require a high level of fitness and typically require you to hike/paddle/ski/etc. many miles per day, often carrying your own equipment.  Contact the Outdoor Center for more information.
