Trips Program

NIC’s Outdoor Pursuits Trips Program is one of the most fun ways to meet new friends while exploring the natural wonders of the northwest. From backpacking to high mountain lakes to surfing the Oregon coast to a full moon snowshoe trip, you will experience community and camaraderie on these student trips. 

Outdoor Pursuits is a NIC department that focuses on creating wilderness experiences for NIC students and the community. Our staff will offer guidance and instruction, making our trips a great place for people to try an activity for the first time.  

The trip cost covers transportation, group gear and any pertinent instruction. Participants will be responsible for their food and personal gear, such as clothing, water bottles, etc.
