Custom Trips

Outdoor Adventure has created custom-designed trips and private programs for many special events. You can request a private workshop for you and your friends to learn more outdoor techniques or your student organization or department can have an Outdoor Adventure plan, organize and even lead your next leadership retreat for your Custom Adventure. Or maybe you and your friends just want to get away from the weekend and want us to take care of the planning for you, either way, if you are interested in learning more, or have any questions, contact: Outdoor Adventure at outdoors@uh.edu.
