About The Penn State Outing Club
The Penn State Outing Club is a fully student-run organization devoted to helping its members experience the outdoors through pursuits such as backpacking, rock climbing, canoeing, and trail maintenance.
The Outing Club stimulates an appreciation for outdoor activities, creates awareness of the need for conservation of our natural environment, teaches the skills needed for the safe enjoyment of outdoor activities, develops leadership and group responsibility among its members.
We are a fully student run organization. Every trip is planned and organized by Penn State Outing Club members. There are no set trips throughout the year, and no mandatory participation requirements. The Penn State Outing Club offers a helpful and organized environment to allow its members to achieve their outdoor goals.
