CSUSM Outdoor Adventures welcomes individuals with diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
The purpose of this volunteer program is to give students who are interested in the
outdoor adventure program, the opportunity to develop both interpersonal and leadership
skills while building relationships with Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Adventure team.
Outdoor Adventures has been introducing Cougars to the outdoors since 2011. We offer
opportunities to meet new people, see new places, and have new and diverse experiences.
Whether you have hiked before or are just now becoming curious about outdoor recreation,
our trips are for CSUSM students wanting to explore. Our goal for all Outdoor Adventure
trips is to build group unity through a cooperative effort by appreciating a wilderness
adventure and creating friendships. We challenge students and ourselves to break away
from the day-to-day routines. You can choose from day trips, to weekend trips, and
to extended week-long excursions that vary in outdoor activities.
Our trips are led by CSUSM student guides, many of whom have acquired extensive wilderness
training and enjoy sharing their love and avidity for the outdoors with others! So
take the plunge and join in on the adventures!
