Embarking on your Next Adventure

For more than a decade, Outdoor Adventures has been taking members of the Missouri State University community on wilderness adventure trips aimed at providing opportunities to meet others, work with a group, learn new skills, enjoy nature and have fun! Outdoor Adventures employs student leaders who guide, instruct and facilitate these group activities.

Trip Details

The trips sponsored throughout any year vary in their duration: some are day trips, while others are longer and are usually scheduled during University breaks.

Most trips have a registration fee to cover transportation, guides, group equipment and other costs. This fee must be paid at the time of registration unless otherwise noted.

Unless otherwise noted, only current MSU students, faculty, and staff can participate in Outdoor Adventures programs. All participants are expected to adhere to Student Code of Conduct while attending OA programs.

Your attendance is also expected at a pre-trip meeting typically held the Wednesday afternoon before the trip.
