Whether you're looking for information about a particular adventure-based activity or are searching for a trip to take you somewhere new and amazing, the Adventure program is here to provide the ISU community with innovative and exciting trips and activities every semester.
Adventure Program trips and activities are designed to be collaborative, actively engaging experiences. They are an opportunity to build community, contribute to a group, create relationships, and have fun! Participants are encouraged and supported to overcome challenges as they try activities and develop skills. Participants are also counted upon to assist with trip tasks, such as: loading/unloading equipment, cooking, and cleaning. The Adventure Program understands that success is not merely defined by how high a person climbs or how well they paddle, but can be as simple as getting out there and trying something new.

Comlara County Park
On our second afternoon hike at Comlara Park, we will explore more trails through the forest and prairie that surround Evergreen Lake. We will warm up with an hour long hike, before spreading out on the shores of the lake for an hour of Restorative Yoga while the sun marches towards the horizon. This is a great opportunity to take a break from studies, breathe in some fresh air, take in bright sunshine, and renew yourself before returning to the books.
April 27, 3:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Join this evening paddle to nearby Evergreen Lake. We will paddle along the shoreline as temperatures cool, and enjoy the sunset while floating on the water before heading back to campus in the twilight. Transportation, instructions, and equipment are included.
