The Outdoor Adventure program at St. Edward's University introduces students and the community to a variety of activities and programs in the great outdoors. Whether you are participating in Adventure Trips or using our Equipment Rental program to create your own adventure, students commune with nature and learn leadership skills through programming and experiential learning.
Outdoor Adventure trips are offered to anyone who wants to experience the wonders of being outside and active. Trips can be simple day trips in the Austin area, week-long backpacking excursions in Big Bend or skiing in Colorado. Each trip is open to all participants, but keep in mind trips have varying levels of difficulty.
All OAP Trips are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All trip registrations must be completed online, with payment due at the time of registration. No refunds will be made available. Some trips have MANDATORY pre-trip meetings: please see trip descriptions for sign-ups and information.
