Outdoor Pursuits trips take many forms, but all of them seek new experiences in beautiful places that encourage adventure!
We offer a variety of trips throughout the year.  From adventures on water, rock, trail, to snow!  Take a break from your  classes and spend the day or weekend with Outdoor Pursuits.

There is no experience necessary on nearly all of our trips and equipment and transportation is included*!
Most of the trips are led by JHU students who have extensive training and experience in Outdoor Leadership and Education.

We host a variety of outdoor specialties from whitewater kayaking to climbing and hiking!
Have a hectic schedule and a busy life?  Relax with us on a day trip. 
Want to get a little dirtier and have a little more time?  Come with us on an overnight trip. 
Really think you are ready for adventure?  Join us on an intersession, spring break or summer Expedition!
