  • Image preview Deschutes River Rafting

    Trip sign-up begins: Tuesday, September 2
    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 16 at 4:30pm


    Central Oregon’s Deschutes River features seven major rapids (rated Class 3+) in ten miles, making this one of the premier rafting rivers in the state. This beautiful river runs through juniper and sagebrush country in the rainshadow of the Cascade Mountains. We’ll leave on Friday night to camp by the put-in & will return to campus after rafting on Saturday.

    until September 20
  • Image preview Stand-Up Paddleboard Bend

    Trip sign-up begins: Tuesday, September 2
    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 16 at 5:00pm


    Stay in yurts near the trendy town of Bend and paddle down the Deschutes River on stand-up paddleboards.  The river meanders through the region, and paddlers will encounter nominal class 1 riffles (class 1 means there is current, but no significant rapids).  You definitely want to have some upper body strength to do this trip but don’t need to be an experienced “stand-up paddler”.  It’s a plus if you’ve been canoeing or kayaking before.  This side of the Oregon Cascades usually has great, sunny, fall weather, and the mountain scenery you’ll see while paddling is spectacular.

    until September 21
