UCLA Recreation

Outdoor Adventures

The Outdoor-Adventures Unit of UCLA Recreation provides a wide variety of experiential-learning opportunities through our Challenge Course, Wilderness Outings, Bike Shop, Rock Wall, and Outdoor-Equipment-Rental Center. We invite you to sign up for a class, trip, or program today! During summer, we lead Wilderness Welcome Trips for incoming students.

We also welcome you to visit the Outdoor-Adventures Office in the John-Wooden Center to access our Resource Center where we provide maps and books for reference. These materials cannot be borrowed, but you are welcome to read and review them in the office.

Are you interested in the possibility of learning how to be a trip leader?  We accept applications for our Outdoor Leadership Training (OLT) program during spring quarter. In addition to guiding our wilderness outings, current students in our OLT program host free workshops in the OA office each quarter.

We also host a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course during spring break each year. This intensive, 80-hour, wilderness-medicine course is open to the public.
