Outdoor Recreation offers adventures trips each semester, including backpacking, caving, cascading, mountain biking, rock climbing, sea kayaking, paddleboarding, and whitewater sports. Tech Treks, freshman outdoor orientation trips, are available during the summer, and a great way to connect with incoming students.
Each semester ORGT offers a variety of beginner, intermediate and advanced outdoor adventure trips. Trips are available in the following categories:
- Mountain Biking
- Rock Climbing
- Sea Kayaking & Paddleboarding
- Whitewater Sports
Tech Treks are freshman orientation trips that take place in the summer. Designed to be a metaphor for entering the difficult academic rigor of Georgia Tech as well as the new frontiers of life on your own, this adventure will challenge you to do your best as well as ask you to look inward. Each day, a portion of our time will focus on an aspect of your time at Tech – your expectations, fears, and celebrations.
