UMPI Outing Club

UMPI Outing Club

About Us

The premier club on campus to get you outside, movin’, shakin’ and meeting new people!

The UMPI Outing Club at the University of Maine at Presque Isle (formerly known as OAPI) hosts a wide selection of events throughout the year. These events range from day trips rock climbing, to hiking and overnight adventures around Maine and New England.

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!  We meet Thursday afternoons during the academic year, at 1 p.m. in the Outing Club office in Gentile Hall (look for specific dates below).
