Fall Outdoor Experience

Frequently Asked Questions

How much experience do I need?

You don’t need any outdoor or technical experience at all. Frequently we have students who have never been camping before, an overwhelming majority report having a wonderful time.

How physically fit do I need to be?

A good level of physical fitness is important. Each itinerary outlines the length and duration of each day's activities, which should give you a good idea of how physically fit you need to be. If you have specific questions about this, please don't hesitate to call or e-mail us.

When do we get back and where will we be dropped off?

We usually return in the early to mid afternoon. We’ll return to the Union parking lot. It's close to the residence halls. We ask that you help load group gear into the OP office and also de-issue any personal equipment rented from us at this time.

Where do we meet to depart?

We will meet in the grassy area between White Hall and Washakie at 9 a.m. We will bring any gear you requested to rent at this time.

How big are the groups?

Each group consists of up to 10 participants and two instructors.

What equipment should I bring?

Please check out our equipment list. We ask that you do not stray too far from the list, although for all the groups you can leave things in the vehicles. If you have specific questions, please call us!
