Outdoor Initiative

CMC Outdoor Initiative is committed to providing CMC free, weekly trips into the outdoors. From hiking to backpacking to rock climbing, OI's trained leaders provide fun and free trips for all levels of experience. Our most popular trips are over breaks. OI is committed to helping all CMCers experience the outdoors.

If you're interested in becoming a leader, applications open at the beginning of each semester and will be sent out via email or can be found on our website. If you wanna come on a trip or watch a sweet outdoorsy film or sign up for a workshop, get on our email list!
