Trips and Events

Our goal is to lead at least one trip per month during the fall and spring semesters. Outdoor program trips are run through Campus Recreation and are fun, safe opportunities for students, faculty and staff with any level of experience to explore Georgia and the southeast, meet other students, and gain outdoor skills.

Our trips are led by well-trained staff who have experience leading trips and advanced wilderness medical training. Trips may be one day, a weekend, or longer during school breaks to anywhere within driving distance of Valdosta. We'll do just about any non-motorized, environmentally friendly outdoor activity,
so let us know if there's something you want to do!

Participants must register for trips at CORE Outdoors Office during daily afternoon working hours. Trips are open on a first-come, first-served basis and are usually limited to a certain number of participants. The minimum number will vary depending upon the trip; however, five or six are usually required for a trip to go. Sign up early to make sure your space is reserved!

Although our outdoor experiences are recreational, each one can become a learning experience for beginners as well as for experienced persons. While enjoying ourselves and learning about the outdoors, we should always strive to minimize our impact on the environment as much as possible. After all, we are the visitors. We adhere to Leave No Trace practices.
