Trips

Discover OP  from ASU Outdoor Programs on Vimeo.

Adventure! It's the core of what we do at Outdoor Programs. Explore the forests, paddle the rivers, climb the rocks, discover what you can do. Boone has over two million acres of wild, rugged and undeveloped land at our doorstep. It will take a lifetime to experience it all, so you'd better get started now.

We have trips and trainings going outside on most weekends in the sun, rain and snow. OP is not a club and you do not need to be a member. Just stop by our Base Camp in the Student Recreation Center to get your name on the list. We specialize in small group sizes so we can manage our impact, provide personal instruction, and travel light. Trips and trainings fill fast, so don't wait to sign up.

To see full descriptions of all our trips, please visit the OP Calendar!
