The Outdoor Program is a cooperative, common adventure program, in which participants equally share responsability in all aspects of the trip. This includes trip planning, expenses, and allows for an educational and rewarding experience for all. Most trips are fairly spontaneous, with the trip sheets posted weekly on the “Trip Board.” Longer expeditions are planned further in advance and are posted on the “Future Trips Clipboard.”
There are no paid leaders at the Outdoor Program, in fact, anyone can initiate a trip. So, the only cost to participants are the actual shared expenses for the trip, such as gas, food and equipment rental if necessary. The OP has a wide variety of camping and recreational equipment available for participants to check out. We have equipment available for OP trips and also individual outings.
For more information on equipment see the Equipment Rental page.
