Outdoor Trips FAQ


What if I’m a novice?

That’s perfect! We specialize in adventures for beginners. By providing transportation, the necessary gear, and knowledgeable trip leaders, we make getting outside stress free! Learn the basic skills needed to start your own adventures.  And, chances are, you won’t be alone; there will be many others who are new to the experience joining you on the trip.

What if I don’t know anyone?

If you’re signing up alone, don’t worry! One of the best things about our trips is that you’ll have the chance to meet and bond with new people. Trip leaders will help facilitate conversations in the vans, on the trail, or over the campfire. Have some laughs and enjoy time with other students from Sac State.

What is included?

Transportation to and from campus*, experienced trip leaders, permits, reservations, and all technical gear. Oh, and fun! Did we mention fun?! A GREAT value!
