Davidson Outdoors is offering an in-person Outdoor Odyssey this summer! 

About Outdoor Odyssey

Outdoor Odyssey is open to any first-year or transfer student and will use outdoor activities such as canoeing, camping, and our on-campus high-ropes course to build community for new students.

Upper-class trip leaders support your group on basic skills as you work together to build relationships and share significant experiences.

Participation is open to any skill level and has been designed such that students can remain physically distant and masked.

Due to the high demand for Outdoor Odyssey 2021 we've decided to use a lottery system. The lottery will remain open until May 31. On June 1 you will receive an email detailing that you've been placed in a crew or that you're on the waitlist.

Dates: August 16-18
Registration Lottery: Open May 17-31

Fees & Financial Aid

Cost: $100 (financial aid available)

Although there is a cost to the Outdoor Odyssey program, financial aid is robust.  Any incoming student receiving financial aid to attend Davidson can receive aid for Outdoor Odyssey.
