Trip Policies


Trip fees indicated are for students and their guests, and cover the cost of transportation and most gear. Trip attendees, however, must provide their own personal gear, e.g. clothing, rain gear, hiking boots, etc. 

Single day trips:

Single day trip attendees are expected to provide their own food, snacks and drinks. The OAC and its staff do not provide food or snacks on single day trips.

Multi-day trips:

The cost of food and snacks are included in the trip fee for multi-day trips. Menu planning and special accommodations and needs are all discussed at the pre-trip meeting.


Payment and sign up for outdoor trips is managed at the front desk of the Outdoor Adventure Center. Both the “waiver” and “medical form” are required at the time of payment for the registration process to be considered completed. Student Recreation accepts Titan Dollars, cash, checks and credit cards (Mastercard and Visa).


The Outdoor Adventure Center reserves the right to cancel a trip in the event of inclement weather, schedule conflicts, or if the minimum number of sign-ups were not met. Registrants will be contacted via e-mail to inform them of the cancellation of a trip. A full refund will be issued to registrants if the OAC cancels a trip.


Refunds will only be issued in the event that OAC cancels a trip.

Pre-trip meetings & Departure

Select programs, activities or trips require attendance at a pre-trip meeting.

Meetings are held in the OAC, and registrants will be informed of the meeting date and time via e-mail. Failure to attend a pre-trip meeting may disqualify a registrant from participation in the activity or trip.
