Interested in Trip Leading?

We are looking for energetic and outdoor-loving students to join our Trip Staff! Those interested in a paid trip leader position with the Outdoor Adventure Program are asked to complete a Trip Leader Training Course first, held during the Fall 2014 semester. This allows you to gain experience with our program and make sure it fits with your interests. Once you have taken the course you may become a paid trip leader. More information on this course and how to sign up can be found on our Instructional Workshops page. We hope you join us!
