  • Explore Adventure for Incoming Students

    Explore Adventure is an outdoor orientation program that is designed to provide incoming Clemson students the opportunity to build friendships with other incoming students, learn about life at Clemson from current students, gain experience in local outdoor recreation, and reflect on their transition to college in a fun and relaxed environment before their first semester at Clemson begins. The Explore Adventure program is designed for first-year Clemson students and is tailored towards the beginner! While we teach you the ropes on camping, paddling, and backpacking, a base level of physical fitness is required.

    Visit our Explore Adventure page for more information.

  • International Adventure Trips

    Does this cold weather have you dreaming of warmer climates? Join CORE (Clemson Outdoor Recreation and Education) as we travel to the Island of Dominica in the Caribbean for the trip of a lifetime. Immerse yourself in the Dominican culture as we work alongside members of the Cochrane united farmers group to help establish sustainable agriculture sites in their mountain community. Experience adventure activities that are only found on the Nature Island of the Caribbean, like remote rainforest waterfall hikes, natural hot spring soaks, and snorkeling barrier reefs. Check out the video below from previous trips to Dominica.

  • Cancellations and Refunds

    Trip Cancellation Policy:

    CORE reserves the right to cancel a trip or clinic due to inclement weather, natural disasters, or extenuating circumstances. If a trip or clinic is canceled, a full refund will be provided to those registered.

    Trip Refund Policy:

    Participants are responsible for understanding the cancellation and refund policy for the CORE trip(s) they are registering for. CORE does not issue refunds for trips that are not attended. CORE reserves the right to not issue a refund at the discretion of the program administrators.

    Single-day Trips:
    • Full Refund: Cancellation occurs more than 10 business days before the date of the trip.
    • No Refund: Cancellation occurs fewer than 10 business days before the trip's depature, regardless of the circumstances.
    Multi-day Trips:
    • Full Refund (minus non-refunable deposit fees): Cancellation occurs more than seven days before the scheduled pre-trip meeting date.
    • No Refund: Cancellation occurs fewer than seven business days before the scheduled pre-trip meeting date. A refund may be given after this time if a replacement can be found from the trip’s waitlist.

    Outdoor adventure activities can be exciting and rewarding, but may also be physically demanding and potentially dangerous. While our highest priority is given to safety, participants need to be aware of the inherent risks associated with participation in outdoor recreation activities, as well as the responsibility they assume for their own safety and well-being. Participants are responsible for medical or other costs arising out of bodily injury, illness, or property damage that may be sustained as a result of their voluntary participation, and they are required to sign a Release and Waiver of Liability/Informed Consent.
