Welcome! We’re Glad You’re Here

SOU Outdoor Program advocates the spirit of adventure for students. We offer student led trips throughout the school year for the entire campus community, as well as, high quality camping/rafting/kayaking/backpacking equipment rentals for students and the community. Outdoor Programs also offers students full access to our on campus climbing gym, and weekly kayak skill development sessions in the SOU pool where we teach students the skills required for kayaking as well as give them the opportunity to improve their core skills. SOU Outdoor Program also supports all the adventure based clubs on campus. See Adventure Clubs link for more info on clubs.


We're located in McNeal Pavilion so feel free to stop by to say hello or get advice on your next adventure!
