Outdoor trip leaders are experienced, outgoing, and passionate about sharing their love of the outdoors and building community on trips. All instruction, transportation, and technical equipment is included in the cost. Meals will be provided on overnight trips. All trips are designed to be cooperative, educational experiences that allow participants to:

  • Create meaningful connections with other students outside of the classroom
  • Challenge themselves mentally and physically
  • Learn skills necessary to plan their own outdoor trips
  • Take an active role in the success of themselves as well as the group
  • Adventure off campus in unique settings in Maryland and throughout the mid-Atlantic
