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.

    This 80-hour wilderness medicine course is the industry standard for field-based medical training for outdoor trip leaders, instructors, and folks who just like to spend a lot of time outdoors.  You will be prepared to handle all types of medical issues that may arise when in the backcountry.  The class will meet 8 to 12 hours per day over the scheduled days, with one day off to be scheduled by the instructor. (Class length may vary, due to outdoor scenarios and rescue training being taught.) We recommend you don’t have any other commitments while taking this course, as you will be busy!
