Event Details

Each semester a series of two or more adventure based trips are planned for the student body. The trips give the students the opportunity to partake in a variety of activities. These activities include backpacking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, skydiving, caving, biking, and more!

A trip with outdoor pursuits will:

  • Expand appreciation of the wilderness
  • Teach how to adapt to new and challenging situations
