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 kayaking and sailing Lake Bemidji or ice fishing, cross country skiing, or snow shoeing in the middle of winter.  The OPC makes it possible with our waterfront boathouse on Lake Bemidji and our winter rentals at the Gillett Wellness Center.

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.


Outdoor and indoor facilities providing diverse experiences.

Equipment Rentals

From kayaks to bikes to winter gear, we got it.
