Join us for an outdoor adventure! Learn how to ice climb, cross-country ski, hang glide or kayak. You can take an Avalanche Skills Training or a Wilderness First Aid course, go on an alpine touring ski trip or learn how to rock climb. We also have extended canoe or backpacking trips.

Only around for a few days? Why not join us for a day hike or snowshoe trip (perfect for out-of-towners) or create your own custom trip with the help of our program coordinators. Go to our website, check out our current program guide or call 403-220-5038 for more information.

If you don't have your gear with you, we have quality gear (over 10,000 items) for rent at competitive prices.

You'll find the Calgary Outdoor Centre on the University of Calgary Campus near the Olympic Oval. To park in the 15-minute loading zone, take 24th Ave. N.W. west from Crowchild Trail, and turn right on University Gate.
