Adventure Trips


The trips and workshops offered by the Outdoor Recreation Program at Sam Houston State University are open to anyone who wants a truly unique experience. Trips can vary in difficulty from easy to strenuous and range from an afternoon in a canoe to a week in the backcountry. This is your chance to get outside, try something different, and live the life less ordinary. No experience is necessary to sign up! Trip costs include: transportation, equipment, food (except any meals on the road), permits and fees, lodging or camping, instruction, and guides.
