TRIPS

Here it is folks, your OC menu to adventure, learning, and outrageous fun for the semester! Our unbeatable prices for trips include meals, transportation and rental of any equipment needed.

The Fall 2018 Trip Schedule Brochure is here!

The OC puts out wilderness trips every weekend, in all seasons - even during Spring Break! To get information on scheduled trips, call, e-mail, check this site, sign up for our listserv, or better yet, stop by the house! Trips listed need confirmation they will be going out. We recommend you call to check enrollment status two weeks prior to the date it is scheduled to go out.


Click here for Fall 2018 trips, film festivals, Cat Classic, and all other OC events!

All spots on trips will be released and sold exclusively on University Tickets. Once you purchase a spot, we CANNOT refund your ticket if the trip goes out. If you buy a spot, please try your best to follow through with the trip. If you cannot, notify your leaders as soon as possible and try to find someone else to buy your spot!

Trip leaders will contact you 2 week before your trip with details of time and place for a pre-trip meeting. You'll be told what gear you will need, discuss prior experiences and goals for your chosen trip. Most gear is available through the Outing Club, if you don't have your own. All gear rental fees are included in the price of your trip!

Once you have returned from your trip, please fill out this OC Leader Evaluation Form
