The purpose of UREC Outdoors is to meet the outdoor educational, recreational and personal development needs of the students, faculty and staff of the University of Arkansas.

Who Can Participate?

Participants interested in trips or becoming more involved with the program should contact UREC Outdoors at (479) 575-CAMP. No previous experience is necessary for any of the outdoor recreational programs unless otherwise specified. Enjoy the great outdoors and take advantage of the numerous opportunities!

Trips and Clinics

The trips and clinics are offered to currently enrolled students and the university community (Faculty, Staff, and UREC members). Several of our seminars, clinics, and workshops are open to the general public; however, a higher fee may be assessed for non-university participants.  There are two fee categories for University participants: Students & University (Faculty, Staff, and UREC Members).  For all off-campus activities, participants must be at least 17 years of age and realize that the safety of the group takes precedent over the individual's perceived needs.  Unless specified, registration costs include transportation, necessary equipment, instruction, and trained trip leaders! Attendance at any pre-trip meeting is mandatory.
