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.
