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). You can register online.
