Stout Adventures offers a variety of trips and clinics. Our offerings are open to all Stout students, faculty and staff as well as the community. Trips run under the cooperative adventure model meaning your trip leaders goal is to serve as a resource instead of strictly a guide. While on trips, your leaders will provide the expertise and knowledge of wilderness travel while educating participants. Our goal at Stout Adventures is that you walk away from your trip with an amazing experience, as well as a wealth of new knowledge. The hope is that using the cooperative adventure model will provide you with a more rewarding  experience because of the active role you get to take as a participant.
All our trips are instructional and are geared toward persons with little or no experience. A partner is not needed for any of our trips as you will meet plenty of amazing individuals on your journey.
Pre-trip meetings are mandatory because of the essential information that you acquire. If you miss a pre-trip meeting without making arrangements with the trip leader, we reserve the right to remove you from the trip and forfeit your trip fee or deposit.
