Go climbing, meet people, learn new skills, get involved.

The OP Adventures program provides great opportunities for MSU Denver students to try new things, learn new skills and get started with outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing and canoeing. Adventures provide a “hard skills” approach to learning in the outdoors – that means we focus on how to do it, specifically the skills needed to become an independent outdoors person.

Due to pandemic safety concerns, OP is working with groups to provide safe activities including 
small-group hikes, virtual events and online resources
