Covid-19 Trips Update

Update 4/1/21: Currently College Outdoors is offering programming in the Spring 2021 term, with modifications in accordance with LC’s reopening plans. We are offering limited off-campus trips to Stand-Up Paddleboard on the Willamette River, using vans with reduced capacity, and providing N95 masks to those riding in a van. Most trips are still on or near campus (where driving in enclosed vans is not required). On all trips, groups sizes are limited, and participants will need to maintain physical distancing, and wear masks.

Welcome! For spring semester 2021 College Outdoors is again offering a wide variety of Micro Adventures right around campus, as well as outdoor Skills Workshops for those who want to get involved with College Outdoors Leadership. There is something for everyone!

Micro Adventures

These events are all about getting outside right in our own backyard! There are many different trip types, so there is something for everyone! Have an idea for a trip you’d like to see here? Email us at

Skills Workshops

These events focus on some of the 10 skill areas required for becoming a Trip Leader for College Outdoors, and are especially useful for anyone interested in pursuing College Outdoors leadership. There are no pre-requisites (unless listed), and everyone is welcome!

Looking forward to post-covid programming:

We also offer New Student Trips, Wilderness First Responder training, week-day Open House activities, and leadership opportunities. There is something for everyone!
