The Outdoor Program, supported by ASCI (student government), is an outdoor recreation and educational program offering classes, workshops, trips and outdoor equipment rentals for student recreational use. Its goal is to provide access to outdoor activities that will foster the development of friendships in the campus community and to educate and promote outdoor recreation.

C of I Outdoor Program student-led trips are designed for everyone who has an interest in the outdoors. Previous experience is not required! Each trip is led by at least one experienced student with training in the activity as well as risk management and first aid. While some activities are more challenging than others, anyone who is willing to try is encouraged to participate. Each trip is planned and organized to help ensure that everyone enjoys each trip as much as possible.
