Summer Trips 2019

To register for a trip, please visit the Campus Recreation Portal.

If you are a current student, faculty/staff, or SRC member, you must read the portal instructions. Do not create a new account.

All trips meet at the Outdoor Adventure cabin, located on Fincher Drive behind the USA Student Recreation Center.  It is within walking distance of USA Housing.  Parking is also available in the Cabin driveway.

All Outdoor Adventures trips include equipment, transportation, and trip guides. Prior to each trip you will receive an email from your trip leaders with important information such as meeting time, a detailed packing list, and any additional paperwork. For all trips we ask that you bring a water bottle, meals (if prompted), and snacks; wear appropriate clothing and footwear; sun protection such as a hat or sunscreen is often needed.

All Outdoor Adventure trips require a waiver to be signed.  You can download the waiver before the trip to save some time. If you are under 19 you must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver ahead of time. If you are over the age of 19, you may sign your own waiver.

Portal Instructions can be found here.

Payment is made in advance and full refunds will be given if the trip does not make.  If you are a current student, faculty/staff, or SRC member, you must read the portal instructions.
