The Recreational Sports Department is looking forward to exploring the outdoors with you this semester! Develop new skills, appreciate the wilderness and build lifelong relationships. Experience various activities such as hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding and more. Join other UTEP students on the many adventures we have to offer!
Rec Sports trips are open to currently enrolled UTEP students and Student Recreation Center Members (Faculty and Staff only). Trips do have limited capacity and spots often fill up quickly, on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration fee includes transportation, group gear, campsite reservations, guides, and food (except meals on the road).
Day Trips - these trips generally depart in the morning and return same day
Multi-day Trips - these trips generally depart at the start and return at the end of the weekend.
