To minimize health and safety risks to Duke students, faculty, staff and the larger community, Duke Recreation & Physical Education facilities have temporarily closed. Communication regarding future hours of operation and programming will be provided on our website and social media platforms (@dukerec).
The outdoor trips program offers a wide variety of land and water-based activities for the backcountry novice, the avid explorer, and everyone in between.
More information about MyRec and instructions on how to create a profile can be found on our MyRec webpage.
Are you stressed? Do you have a lot on your mind? Take a deep breath, stay in the moment, take in your surroundings, and join Outdoor Adventures on a Mindfulness Hike. A DuWell Koru Instructor will guide participants through mindfulness techniques and activities.
Head to the beach to learn how to surf with Outdoor Adventures! The beginning of the day will start with a surf lesson, then you will be set free to catch some waves and hang ten. Enjoy the sand, sun, and sea!
Wondering how you are going to spend your Friday evening? Like Sunsets and Paddling? This is the trip for you! Watch the sky change colors as it reflects off the water all while you are in the middle of lake paddling your Stand Up Paddleboard.
Are you looking for a fun and unique way to work on your balance and core strength? SUP Yoga is the answer! We will spend the first 15-20 minutes paddling and working on SUP technique and balance. Then, with time, we will move to our feet and practice standing poses and other more challenging postures and exercises. We will practice poses for all levels of ability.
Duke Outdoor Adventures reserves the right to cancel a trip or clinic due to inclement weather, natural disasters, or extenuating circumstances. In the event a trip must be canceled, a full trip refund will be provided.
In the event, the participant no longer wants to continue on the trip for personal reasons the cost and organization of transportation home will be the responsibility of the participant and no refund will be given. The participant must also stay on the trip until the Trip Leader decides that it is a safe and appropriate time to leave the trip.
