Adventure Spring Break

The OAP student staff plan a number of Spring break adventures for students. The OAP prides itself on offering a quality experience in the outdoors, planned and led by student trip leaders.  Our student trip leaders have extensive training, including Wilderness First Responder Certification and previous trip leader experience.  Our trip leaders spend a great deal of time researching and planning these trips to ensure a safe, fun, and sometimes educational experience for their peers.

The OAP has been to Puerto Rico on a surfing and beach adventure, the Buffalo National River in Northern Arkansas canoeing and camping, the Grand Canyon backpacking and camping, Utah skiing and snowboarding, and many others.  The trips are a way for students to get out of Houghton for Spring Break and to do it for a reasonable cost.  We focus on outdoor, silent sports style trips that allow us to spend about 1 day of travel to get there and to get back.

The cost of the trips will vary from year to year as well as from trip to trip. In the past trips have ranged in cost from about $300 to $1000, depending on location and activities included.


The ASB Trips for 2019 are listed below:
