CSUSB Outdoors mission is to provide the community with a diverse range of outdoor recreational and educational opportunities. We incorporate "Leave No Trace" and cultural/historical knowledge about the areas we visit. Participants will learn how to recreate safely in the great outdoors, develop an appreciation and understanding of our natural surroundings, experience personal growth and leadership development, learn teamwork and healthy communication skills, form new relationships and of course... have fun!
CSUSB Outdoors offers something for everyone! Day hikes into the local mountains, overnight camping trips to a local beach, state, and national parks, backpacking in remote wilderness locations, surfing in California's popular beaches, snowboarding at local mountain resorts, kayaking in the bay, ocean, and the river, group outings, team building and education programs.
No experience is required to participant. CSUSB Outdoors will provide transportation, food and all the gear you will need for your outing.
