All trips are designed to provide participants with exciting outdoor recreational opportunities. Trips are open to all Ohio State Rec Sports members. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in an adventure trip. Our intention is to provide powerful group building experiences that help participants develop new friendships, learn lifelong wilderness skills, develop leadership qualities, increase interpersonal skills, and expand appreciation and concern for the environment.
Trained student or professional staff lead all weekend adventure trips. Prices for these activities include program-specific equipment, transportation, food, camping fees, and required permits unless other arrangements are specified in the program description.

OAC Resource Center
Need information on an outdoor activity, want to learn new skills, or plan an adventure trip of your own? All of this can be done at the Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) Resource Center.
Situated next to the Tom W. Davis Climbing Center in the OAC, you can find material on a variety of outdoor sports, such as rock climbing, skiing, backpacking, biking, and fishing. There are also popular adventure sport magazines, computers with a pre-installed topographic map program, and a growing collection of maps and atlases.
Since material cannot leave the resource center, we have a cozy reading area where you can enjoy the compelling information that is available.
