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!

Contact: Amanda Preperato, Assistant Director
aprep@umd.edu, 301-226-3078

COVID-19 Policies & Procedures

Masks should be worn at all times during adventure trips with the following exceptions:
  • Activities in which your mask may get wet. On adventure trips, this includes kayaking and high intensity activities when it is raining.
  • When actively eating or drinking. 
  • If you are having difficulty breathing during a high intensity activity.
  • When you are in your tent on an overnight trip.
     

​Make sure to maintain physical distance, a minimum of 6 feet, from others when you cannot wear a mask. It is recommended that you bring multiple masks on trips so that if your mask gets moist from sweat, you are able to replace it with a clean mask.

For additional information on masks, visit the CDC website.

Due to COVID-19, guests are unable to participate on trips this semester. Members of the UMD community have completed a training video and pledge, get tested for COVID-19 regularly, and complete a daily symptom check. Because guests are not held to these same community standards and expectations, they are unable to participate at this time.
