A brief description of the program:
UC San Diego’s Outback Adventures offers 1-8 day outdoor trips that help the campus community connect with nature and develop a sense of place. Each trip incorporates Leave No Trace ethics and explores the wild places of southern California, Baja California and the Southwest. The trips give participants the skills needed to enjoy a lifetime of environmentally responsible outdoor adventure. Incoming students can participate in a 4-8 day Wilderness Orientation adventure to start their UC San Diego experience. Some UC San Diego courses and seminars are held in the outdoors and some courses include field trips for a hands-on learning experience.
