College Outdoors

College Outdoors provides the Lewis & Clark College community with access to the spectacular outdoor environments of the Pacific Northwest through a variety of activities including cross-country skiing, backpacking, whitewater sports, sea kayaking, and hiking.

Participants find themselves at the mountains, rivers, deserts, and coasts that span across Oregon, California, and Washington. College Outdoors’ trips are open to Lewis & Clark undergraduates, graduate students, law students, faculty, and staff.  Trips promise friendly people, fresh air, and fantastic scenery.

College Outdoors offers practical leadership opportunities. Students are encouraged to get involved with College Outdoors by volunteering.  Continued involvement can lead to trip leading opportunities and other staff positions.

To sign up for a trip, visit the College Outdoors office in Templeton Campus Center or call 503-768-7116.
