  • 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.
