Outdoor Program Trips and Events


Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Outdoor Program events have been suspended until further notice, including kayak roll sessions. The Outdoor Program will be assessing Fall Semester 2020 trips and events after Outdoor Experience. An announcement about programming will follow the Labor Day holiday. COVID-19 protocols will be in place for every event, depending on the event.

Rentals have resumed with Fall 2020 classes and will be conducted by appointment. Use the rental form to set up your rental and appointment.

The program has also provided information and resources related to changes in access to public lands and recreation.

Upcoming Trips and Events

The Westminster Outdoor Program aims to serve anyone from the Westminster Community who is interested. Please contact outdoorprogram@westminstercollege.edu if you would like to participate but feel unable to pay the entire event fee. While modest, the Outdoor Program Participation Fund is designed to help in these cases.
