The Clemson University Outdoor Recreation and Education Program provides the Clemson University Community the opportunity to participate in a variety of outdoor adventure activities. Trips and instructional programs are scheduled throughout the year and include backpacking, hiking, river running, canoeing, sea kayaking, and rock climbing. Trips can be designed for every skill level, from the beginner to the advanced adventurer. As part of CORE's commitment to education, skills workshops are also offered Leave No Trace, rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, and bicycle maintenance. In addition to these programs, CORE also provides an equipment rental service, a bike program, and staff who can serve as resource personnel to help groups plan their own adventure trips.
