About the Program


The trip component of UGA Outdoor Recreation is designed to provide fun, hands-on instructional opportunities for never-ever beginners and novice participants to learn the skills and safety concerns for a wide variety of outdoor activities in a supervised environment.


Unless stated, no prior experience is required and in most cases, all group equipment for that activity is provided as well as transportation by passenger van. An experienced staff of trip leaders provide logistical planning, instruction, leadership and facilitation for a group experience.

Some trips are available at an intermediate or experienced level for individuals to progress in their skill acquisition. In all cases, a moderate level of physical fitness will allow for a more enjoyable experience.
This program is subsidized by the Student Activity Fee and is a great way to learn outdoor skills in a supervised setting, meet people with similar interests and take a break from the daily routine.

UGA Outdoor Recreation also encompasses equipment rental from the Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC), Climbing/Bouldering Walls and Indoor/Outdoor Challenge Courses.
