Husky Adventures and Custom Trips

If it's the trip of a lifetime that you're looking for or you just want to spend some time in the fresh air, on the open water or traipsing through the woods and hills, Campus Recreation has the leadership, planning tools and equipment to make those kinds of journeys happen.

We help you make it happen and make it special.

Husky Adventures

Husky Adventures develops programs and opportunities for St. Cloud State University students to travel and receive instruction in specific outdoor disciplines.

The goal is to keep the price down and provide diverse programming, experiences and training.

We operate under Special Use Permits where required. We believe that having a solid relationship with land management agencies protects natural resources and ensures the future of programs at these locations.

Our permits:

Every participant must pre-register for all trips and clinics and attend pre-trip meetings. Contact Ivan Bartha, 320-308-6691.

A tremendous amount of time and energy goes into planning Outdoor Endeavors' programs. That said, cancellations happen. Our policy:

  • More than 20 days prior to the trip/clinic, 100 percent refund.
  • Between 20 & 10 days prior to the trip/clinic, 50 percent refund.
