Custom Events and Trips

Develop your group through dynamic experiences! Our custom trips are available to NIU organizations and the general public. Depending on your goals and interests, our staff will plan and lead your group through activities during an afternoon, overnight or on a longer trip. Your group will have opportunities to learn leadership and outdoors skills, build relationships and share experiences that will last a lifetime.

You can choose from a wide range of activities with adventure, education and team-building components. Some possible activities include canoeing, rock climbing, geocaching and moonlight hiking.


Prices vary depending on type and length of trip/activities and the size of your group. Trips typically cost between $5-$30 per person per day. Transportation, food, and group and individual gear are included.

There may be additional charges for requests received with less than two weeks' notice.
