Outdoor Program Center

Be adventurous!

The nationally recognized Outdoor Program Center provides you with the opportunity to be a part of the outside world around you.

Imagine climbing to the top of a mountain or kayaking through a canyon, ice fishing in the middle of winter, or taking a sailboat out on Lake Bemidji. The OPC makes it possible with trips to destinations throughout the United States, a climb on our state of the art indoor climbing wall, or with equipment rentals if you’re going on your own.

Recognized for offering “trans-formative programming,” our program has one of the highest participation rates in the nation, and is open to the public and campus community alike.

So enjoy northern Minnesota (and the country) as it was meant to be enjoyed.
