The Outdoors Is for Everyone
The Outdoor Program runs trips most weekends throughout the school year. Open to all Whitman students, most OP trips are designed for beginners with little to no experience, but a small portion of trips are for intermediate or advanced levels (and will be indicated as such). Activities include kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, rafting, skiing, snow-shoeing, ice climbing and more! The Bob Carson Outdoor Fund can help cover some OP activity fees.
