William & Mary

Outdoor Recreation

Day and weekend adventures in the wilds of Virginia.

Every semester, the outdoor recreation program organizes a dozen unforgettable day or weekend trips to nearby national and state parks and the sandy shores of Virginia Beach.

Camping, caving, mountain climbing, white water rafting, surfing, yoga, hikes and more are available for a minimal fee to William & Mary students, faculty, staff and guests. Consult the trip schedule for more information.

The outdoor recreation program also rents out camping equipment—tents, sleeping bags, camping stoves, lanterns, etc.—to students, faculty and staff so it’s easy to get out and explore the beautiful mountains, forests and waterways of the picturesque Williamsburg region.
