Outdoor Action

Leadership Starts Here

Arrival for Frosh Trip

Outdoor Action Check-in is Sunday, September 1 at 6:00 PM in Dillon Gym

Please gather all of your personal equipment Sunday morning, and put it either in a backpack (if you have your own) or a trashbag (if you are borrowing a backpack from OA) so that all of your things are ready Sunday evening.   You don't need to bring any equipment to Dillon Gym Check-in, except, if you are on a hiking trip, please bring your hiking boots. After Check-in you will have an opportunity later in the evening to pick up the rest of your belongings from your dorm.

At Check-in you will meet your trip leaders and the other students in your group and we'll distribute any equipment (backpacks or sleeping bags) that you'll need for your trip. Sunday evening you'll meet as a group to learn more about your trip and the other people in your group, pack up and prepare to depart campus on Monday morning. You'll spend Sunday night with your group to be ready for an early depature on Monday morning.

Map of Groups in Dillon Gym

The map below corresponds to the Trip Number that was emailed to you on Friday. Meet your group at the spot on the main gym floor in Dillon Gym that roughly corresponds to the location on the map below. Your Leaders will be there with a sign that has your Group Number on it (Example: H1). Make sure to give them your first and last name so they can check you in.

Each OA group will stay together on campus on Sunday night to be ready for an early departure on Monday morning. On Monday we will collect your University ID card ("prox"). We will also need either the original or a physical copy of some form of government-issued photo ID (e.g. Driver's license or passport) and a physical copy of your health insurance card. We will securely store all of these during the trip, and will return them to you on Friday when you return to campus. If you are on the University Health plan, you can print a copy of your insurance card - go to and click on the Print your Card link. Enter your PUID number and date of birth.
