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!

Registration for Spring 2018 ORP workshops and trips begin January 8 at 8:00 AM at the ORP office in State Gym.
