Leadership Starts Here

Become a Leader

Become an Outdoor Action Leader

Being an OA Leader is one of the most valuable things you can do to help next year's freshmen class have a successful transition into Princeton. OA Leaders are role models and mentors for 60% of the incoming class. Ask anyone you know who is an OA Leader (and there are more than 300 of them on campus) and they'll tell you it's an absolutely incredible experience. Any student can learn the skills needed to lead a group on an OA Trip and with the diversity of trips we offer (base camp, biking, backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, sustainable farming) there's a trip for you. Don't miss out on this special Princeton experience. Train to become an OA Leader this semester.

Welcome to the New OA Web Site!

We are really excited to announce the opening of the new Outdoor Action Web site. We've completely rebuilt the site to make it easy to get the latest information about anything that you are interested in about Princeton Outdoor Action, the outdoors, and leadership. Over the next few months we'll be continuing to add more resources to the site like local places to get outside near Princeton, information on outdoor skills and more. 

Navigating the Site

You can generally find what you are looking for through the navigation bar or use our advanced Search feature.

Become part of the Largest Leadership Organization on Campus

Outdoor Action Leader Training is starting up for the spring. We are the largest leadership training program on campus and the experience that you get leading for OA is invaluable. We are looking for the most diverse group of students to become the next generation of OA Leaders. You don't need to have any previous experience in the outdoors or even to have gone on the OA Frosh Trip. We can teach you everything you need to know to be an effective leader both on campus and in the outdoors.
