Adventure Program


The mission of the Red Rocks Adventure Program is to provide Red Rocks Community College students with high quality student-led outdoor adventure trips that are affordable, educational, inclusive, and challenging for all abilities. Our programs are built on a foundation of student development, holistic wellness, and building a community on campus. Trips are available to all fee-paying students and staff at a minimal cost. Trips vary from semester to semester, but will include a variety of activities like rock climbing, backpacking, mountain biking, mindfulness hikes, and snowshoeing. All necessary equipment, instruction, and transportation is included in the registration cost. All trips are planned at the beginning of each semester and students can register for any trip at the Student Recreation Center website or at the front desk of the SRC. The Adventure Program is also available for personalized trips that are tailored to groups, classes, or cohorts on campus. To organize a specialized trip, email program coordinator Brian Barry at We look forward to having you join our trips and experience Colorado with the Red Rocks community.
