Outdoor Pursuits Program (OPP)

The Outdoor Pursuits Program provides many opportunities for you to get out and explore.

Sign up for a trip; we offer both one day and overnight adventures.

Come and rent the outdoor equipment you need for your own personal trip.

Rent a bicycle for the day to go food shopping. Do you have your own bicycle that needs a little attention? Come and speak to the bike shop mechanics.

Come visit the Outdoor Pursuits Program office in the Beauchamp Recreation Center.

The Outdoor Pursuits Program (OPP) offers a wide variety of one-day and multi-day trips which include hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, snow shoeing, rock climbing, and many more great Pacific Northwest adventures.

The Outdoor Pursuits Program office will be closed during the Christmas Break.
