Outdoor Action creates lasting friendships, eases transition to college life

Kayaking and canoeing in Breakneck Pond, laughing and living in the moment, nine first-year students are beginning their Princeton journey together at Harriman State Park in New York. The group is participating in one of the 75 Outdoor Action trips taking place this week before Opening Exercises on Sunday.

OA can accomodate students with many different concerns, including medical issues, religious practices, and internet/technology accessability. Our goal is to do our best to make this experience as accessible as possible for all students, especially in our current global health crisis. Please contact us to let us know about your specific needs so we can try and find a trip that will work for you.
