Outdoor Adventure Program

Custom Adventures

If you are interested in an adventure in the outdoors but need some support in areas like planning, leadership and equipment, consider a custom trip through the Outdoor Adventure Program! All trip details can be tailored to you and your group's needs.

Creating a custom trip can be great for a variety of groups including:

  • A group of friends
  • Student Organizations
  • University Departments
  • Community Groups

Use the Custom Trip Request Form to begin the process of putting together a custom program through our Outdoor Adventure Program. Requests must be submitted at a minimum of two weeks before the preferred date. To create a custom adventure, a group must consist of at least six participants.

Once your request is submitted, the Outdoor Program Coordinator will respond to confirm dates and give an estimated cost that will cover transportation, group equipment, instruction, leadership, entrance and camping fees as needed. Please inquire if you would like food provided. A deposit will be required 14 days prior to the confirmed trip date.
