Outdoor Recreation

Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center Outdoor Recreation Program

Come explore the great outdoors! The Outdoor Rec Center (ORC) is the base for all of our exciting adventure trips (with online registration), tons of quality rental equipment, and a resource library of books and maps. At the Rec, we offer a fun climbing and bouldering wall and top notch instructional kayak roll workshops in the pool.

Important Updates:

  • The Summer 2018 Adventure Trip Schedule is available and registration is open.

  • The Outdoor Rec Center will be open from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, August 16 due to staff training.

Trip Availability:  If a trip still has space after the registration deadline, registration will remain open until the Pre-Trip Meeting. Trip registration can be completed on the  Fusion Outdoor Rec Page
