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:

TRIP AVAILABILITY:  If a trip still has space after the registration deadline, it can still be signed-up for until the Pre-Trip Meeting. The actual trip registration takes place on the  Fusion Outdoor Rec Page. Don’t forget to LOG IN if you are a Vanderbilt person.
