The Adventure Trips program plans several adventure trips throughout the year that are open to students and the community. In the past, trips have included kayaking, hiking, bouldering, paddling, cross-country and skiing. Adventure Trips are usually a day or two in regional areas either within Iowa or surrounding states.  Trips are open to anyone (students, staff/faculty, community members, and community non-members).  Register online or at the CRWC membership desk.
