Augustana Outdoor Program

We are a community dedicated to facilitating outdoor activities for Augustana students, faculty, and staff in order to create active learning experiences centered on exploring and respecting the natural world.

Gear Rentals

We have outdoor gear available for checkout for all students, faculty, and staff of Augustana for free! Check our Gear Rental page for details on what equipment is available for checkout. 


Take advantage of our outdoor, wilderness trips offered during breaks and weekends and taught by our skilled instructors! All offered for a very low cost!


Come explore and adventure with AOP through single day activities on campus and nearby! No experience is necessary to participate.
