Office hours will be available during the fall semester. Stop by our office in Koury 146 to talk with Outdoors staff, learn more about upcoming events, or plan your own outdoor adventure!
Camping equipment is available to rent for those wishing to explore the vast array of outdoor pursuits available throughout the region. You can reach the Outdoors Resource Room by calling 336-278-2267 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for all Elon Outdoors trips and events is online and opens on the first day of each semester. Participants may pay online or in person at the Koury front desk. Registration closes in advance of each trip (specific dates vary). Refunds are not offered for participants who withdraw after the registration deadline since we enter into contracts on your behalf for vendors, lodging, and other trip costs.
In order to confirm your spot, both registration and payment must be completed before the registration deadline. Any participants who have not completed paperwork or payment by this time will be removed from the roster and open up spots from the waiting list. Some trips may include a mandatory pre-trip meeting to help with logistics and preparation.
