What is outdoor REC?

The Outdoor Rec Program is designed to get members of the university community involved with the natural world through adventurous, human-powered activities. These activities include hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, canoeing, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, bicycle touring, cross-country skiing and caving. Each trip offers opportunities for activity skill development, personal development, social interaction, and safe and enjoyable recreation. Environmental awareness is emphasized throughout each trip.
