RU Outdoors offers hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, caving, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and mountain biking trips, as well as educational seminars to the Radford University community. If you've never tried one of these activities, that is okay! Our trips are geared toward the beginner. For a low fee we provide instruction, technical equipment, camping gear and transportation to the activity site.
How to Sign Up for a Program
Come to the Campus Recreation Office in The Bonnie Hulbert Center 11am-5pm, Monday through Friday to pay for the trip. RU Outdoors accepts checks or cash. All trips have a sign up deadline and a mandatory pre-trip meeting. These meetings are arranged by the trip leaders and are typically scheduled a few days before the activity. Refunds are available for cancellations if 5 days notice is provided to the Campus Recreation or RU Outdoors Office or for cancellations due to inclement weather or poor attendance. Trip fees may also be transferred if 24 hours notice is given by the participant to the Office of Campus Recreation.
