The premier club on campus to get you outside, movin', shakin' and meeting new people!
WE HAVE A NEW NAME...UMPI Outing Club!
The UMPI Outing Club, at the University of Maine at Presque Isle hosts a wide range of events throughout the year. These events range from day trips, overnight camping trips and summer camp for kids. Our club is unique in that these events are available to students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. Please take a moment to view our Past Events page for previous Outing Club activities to get a better idea of what we have to offer!
Join us on Facebook for the latest trip offerings, post-trip pics and videos, local outing opportunities, club meetings, and much more!
Everyone is invited to join us on the 1st & 3rd Friday of each month at 1:00 pm for biweekly meetings in the Outing Club office in Gentile Hall. You do not have to be a member of the club to attend. Share ideas, get excited about being outside, and meet fun people!
