Extended Trips

Need something to do over break? Our extended trips cater to students wanting to escape the demands of school. Join the staff for adventures in rock/ice climbing, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, caving, and backpacking that you’ll never forget. We go to places like the Everglades in Florida, Green River in Utah, and other exotic places!

Is your group looking for an outdoor adventure? Look no further! ORP can customize a trip for you. Anything from canoeing, camping, hiking, skiing or rock climbing, your imagination is the limit. Contact Jerry Rupert at 515-294-4774 or jrupert@iastate.edu.
