The safety and well being of all participants and staff in our Outdoor Adventure Program is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the details of the Restore Illinois Plan and University directives surrounding COVID 19. In accordance with those plans, the Outdoor Adventure program including trips, workshops, and gear rental programs will be unavailable until further notice. Please refer to our department’s Phase 4 Reopening Policies and Procedures for updates on future openings for the Outdoor Adventure program. 

Need to get away from the urban lifestyle for a weekend or even a day? UIC’s Outdoor Adventure Program provides students with outdoor experiences that are educational, inspiring, and fun.  Join us on our next adventure as we climb, hike, kayak, paddle, camp, ski, cook, and learn in a beautiful and natural environment.

“We did romantic night hiking under the moonlight, saw the best mountain views while leaning on the steep rocks, enjoyed cooking and gaming as a close team, and pushed ourselves beyond our limits on rocks and water with our professional and inspiring guides. I can not tell of a similar experience like this trip before and I believe it will always be one of the most special trips ever.”
