Outdoor Adventures



OA's winter schedule has been finalized and participants will be able to register January 6th starting at 12pm. Certain trips tend to fill quickly, so be sure to come to OA in person or access the web portal at this time to secure a spot on your desired trip. The Winter schedule is available for viewing now to help you plan.

Outdoor Adventures wants everyone to be able to enjoy our trip options! If you have a concern about your ability to take part in one of our trips, please contact us at outdooradventures@campusrec.ucdavis.edu and we will work with you to provide the perfect adventure. If price is a concern please fill out a fee waiver to receive scholarship funding. Make sure to do this early. We can not reimburse for a trip which has already been purchased. The fee waiver will be open for winter applications starting December 2nd!

Become a Rafting Guide!

RAFTOutdoor Adventures is proud to offer what we consider to be one of the most comprehensive rafting guide schools available. It consists of 12 classroom hours and eight on-river days spent camping and rafting on the South Fork American River. During this course, you will not only learn the fundamentals of whitewater rafting, but you will also become certified in Swift Water Rescue. Upon course completion, you will be able to guide commercial rafting trips for Outdoor Adventures and other rafting companies. This is a great way to spend your spring break, learn a fun new skill and make lifelong friends in the process. Participants must go through an application and interview process. For more information, contact OA's Water Coordinator Zach Naugles at zsnaugles@ucdavis.edu.
