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: 

    - Make available an opportunity to develop new skills 

    - Expand appreciation of the wilderness 

    - Teach how to adapt to new and challenging situations 

    - Offer a change from "the everyday" routine 

    - Create opportunities to build relationships
