Adventure Trips

​ ​

Get out of College Park and explore the outdoors

Trips hosted by the Adventure Program are a great opportunity to learn new outdoor skills, travel, and meet new people. UMD students, faculty, staff, and RecWell members are able to participate in adventure trips, and each UMD affiliate is able to bring one non-UMD guest.

Unless otherwise stated, all trips are designed as introductory experiences and no previous experience is required. Trained trip leaders will teach you the basics of what you need to know in order to recreate in the outdoors.

If you are in need of financial assistance in order to participate on an adventure trip, you can apply for funding from the Adventure Program Access and Enrichment Fund. The fund was created to cover full or partial adventure trip registrations for students who need financial assistance. Our hope is to provide more Terps with the opportunity to get outside and experience the wellness benefits of physical activity and spending time in nature.

Get outside with us!

Pre-trip meetings are mandatory in order to participate on adventure trips. Unless otherwise stated, pre-trip meetings occur on Thursdays at 7 PM in the Adventure Program during the summer. 

During the pre-trip meeting, you will meet other people going on the trip, review important trip logistics and safety information, practice important outdoor skills, and check out any equipment necessary for your adventure.

Complete the trip registration froms prior to your pre-trip meeting.

We have a waitlist for adventure trips that are full. If interested in being added to the waitlist for a trip, complete the trip waitlist request form. If a participant cancels their registration for a trip, we will contact individuals on the waitlist based on the timestamp from the trip waitlist request form on a first come, first served basis. 

If University Recreation & Wellness (RecWell) cancels the trip due to weather, lack of participants, or other circumstances, the participant will receive a full refund. 

For a one or two day trip: if the participant cancels their registration eight business days (defined as Monday - Friday when classes are in session) or more prior to the first day of the trip, a refund will be given, less a $10.00 processing fee. Cancellations made within 7 business days prior to the first day of the trip will result in no refund. If you or the Adventure Program are able to find another individual to take your place on the trip two business days or more in advance of the trip, a refund will be given less a $10.00 processing fee. 
 
For extended trips of 3 days length or longer: if the participant cancels their registration 13 business days or more prior to the first day of the trip a refund will be given, less a $10.00 processing fee. Cancellations made within 12 business days prior to the first day of the trip will result in no refund. If you or the Adventure Program are able to find another individual to take your place on the trip five business days or more in advance of the trip, a refund will be given less a $10.00 processing fee.
 
All cancellations and refunds must be submitted through the RecWell Adventure Program Trip Cancellation & Refund Request Form. The timestamp generated from the completion of this form will act as the official time of your cancellation / refund request.

Cancellation/Refund Form 

The RecWell Adventure Program values inclusion and is committed to making programs accessible to as many individuals as possible. Adventure Program professional staff have designed these essential eligibility criteria based on industry best practices, benchmarking with other organizations, available equipment, and level of staff training within the RecWell Adventure Program.

Individual adventure trips can vary based on the specific activity and location.  Trip descriptions may contain additional or more specific requirements. If you have questions or concerns about meeting certain criteria, please contact Amanda Preperato at aprep@umd.edu or at 301-226-3078 to determine if it is possible to make programmatic or equipment accommodations to meet your needs. 

The Adventure Program has adaptive kayaking, climbing, and biking equipment that may be used to assist individuals. Adventure Program staff are committed to assisting participants with accommodations unless it alters the fundamental nature or safety of the experience.

Custom Adventure Trips

Are you interested in organizing an adventure trip for your group? If so, the Adventure Program can create and lead a custom trip just for you and your group! We create custom trips for groups of friends as well as for organized groups like student organizations and academic units. Here's what you need to do if you are interested:
1. Gather a minimum of 6 people who want to participate 
2. Determine your preferred trip dates
3. Determine your trip activity and location (we can customize any of our open enrollment trip offerings)
4. Agree upon your desired trip outcomes (recreation, bonding, improving communication, improving leadership skills, etc.)
5. Complete the custom trip request form at least three weeks before your desired trip

After completing the custom trip request form, a staff member will follow up with you within 72 hours to discuss your trip and provide you with an estimated cost. If you have questions regarding custom trips, please contact Amanda Preperato at aprep@umd.edu or at 301-226-3078.
