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 rock climbing, to hiking and overnight adventures around Maine at New England. We also work with other clubs and organizations to co-sponsor events, like Frozen Frenzy and a haunted walk.
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!
