Always Say Yes to Adventure....and Outdoor Pursuits!

While Pacific students are plugging away in their classes, the Outdoor Pursuits staff is also hard at work creating trips and activities for next semester. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for information about upcoming indoor kayak pool sessions, cross country ski trips, and rafting series!

In the meantime, there are plenty of ways students can get involved with Outdoor Pursuits, including renting gear from Outdoor Pursuits for a long weekend, borrowing a free cruiser bike to ride around town, or even simply going for a hike at the local Henry Hagg Lake.

The last Outdoor Pursuits excursion for the semester takes place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17th — an indoor rock climbing trip! This indoor excursion will certainly be warmer and dryer, plus just as much fun as a day out on the rocks. Transportation, gear and instruction is provided for this evening getaway. Grab a friend and reserve your space for Nov. 17!

Swing by the Outdoor Pursuits office located at 2017 21st Ave. in downtown Forest Grove between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to speak to our fabulous staff, call us at 503-352-2264, or email us at
