Recreational Sports

The Outdoor Adventures Rental Center will be closed Tuesday, April 19 - Thursday, April 28, 2016. 

Outdoor Adventures provides outdoor educational and recreational opportunities for all students, regardless of prior experience. Outdoor equipment from camping gear to snowshoes to tug-of-war ropes can be borrowed from our Rental Center. We offer classes in wilderness medicine and outdoor skills such as backcountry cooking and building outdoor shelters. For those who just want to get outside, we offer a variety of trips during weekends and breaks. Past destinations have included dogsledding in the Upper Peninsula, canoeing and kayaking the Huron River, and backpacking the Grand Canyon.
