About the Outdoor Action Program

The Outdoor Action Program has been an important program for building community at Princeton for more than thirty years. Outdoor Action activities serve as powerful group bonding experiences that help students develop new friendships, learn leadership skills, increase interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, develop concern for the environment, and learn lifelong wilderness skills. Find out what students, leaders, and alumni say about the impact of the Outdoor Action program. If you are interested in helping Outdoor Action continue to grow, see you can help though the Friends of OA.
