Program Highlight
Outdoor Adventure Trips

Are midterm blues weighing you down? Looking for a chance to take a break and unwind? Ditch the stuffy classroom and take in the fresh air through the SRWC Outdoor Adventure program. Join a fun group of students on weekend trips to Joshua Tree, Bolsa Chica State Beach, the Hollywood Sign and more.

Students looking for a way to connect with other members of the campus community while trying something new and exciting are perfect candidates for the trip, according to Rock & Outdoor Adventure Lead Chris Foust. Chris is passionate about the program and believes firmly in its mission.

“The goal of our program is not only to meet new friends and enjoy the outdoors, but it’s also to show students a few of the amazing locations near Long Beach State while providing the necessary gear for them to have a memorable experience,” Chris said. Certain gear, such as rock climbing equipment from the Stony Point climbing trip, is provided for you to get the most out of your trip.

If you are a student who is considering attending a trip, Chris recommends stopping by the rock wall at the SRWC. “We have trip details and general itineraries for all the outdoor adventures we have planned for the semester,” Chris said. “All of the employees here at the Rockwall are excited to talk about our adventure trips, assist you with registration and help out in any other way we can!”

Future participants can expect a positive environment where safety is prioritized by an experienced trip leader. According to Chris, “Outdoor adventure trips are well thought-out and designed specifically for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

The upcoming trip, Bolsa Chica Surfing, will take place from Oct. 19 at the price of $35 per student. Register by Oct. 14 at the SRWC to ensure you have a spot on this amazing adventure. Other upcoming trips include:

  • Three Peak Hike / Angeles National Forest (10/26)
  • Joshua Tree Camp & Climb Weekend (11/2-11/3)
  • Hike to the Hollywood Sign (11/16)
