Find Adventure Here

The Regis Outdoor Adventure Program (OAP) is an outdoor recreation and experiential learning program offering workshops, personal skill training, professional development, spiritual growth, and experiential activities. The program provides participants with outdoor learning experiences that are processed allowing time for reflection.

OAP serves as an outlet for the Regis community to participate in outdoor activities guided by the Ignatius tradition of "Finding God in all things," to develop a deeper understanding of the wilderness through experiential, adventure, and environmental education and to participate in intentionally designed activities that create opportunities for spiritual reflection and leadership development.

How Much Does It Cost?

Rental is free for Regis students; however, fees will be assessed for improper returns (i.e. leaving your gear in our hallway), late return without attempting to contact us, or damage to your gear, as stated in the rental contract.

How long can I rent OAP gear for?

Available OAP equipment may be rented for up to 2 business days. It is due back the 2nd business day after it is rented (i.e. if it is rented on Monday, it will be due back on Wednesday by the end of the day).  This means that in order to rent gear for the weekend, you must come in on Thursday or Friday.  This gear would then be due on Monday or Tuesday, respectively.
Any Fitness Center or OAP staff can check in gear when the Fitness Center is open.
A late fee of 5% of the equipment’s replacement cost will be assessed for Each Day that a piece of gear is late.

What are the fees if I lose, damage or return gear late?

If gear is lost, damaged, or late and you do not remit payment at the OAP office within 20 days of when the equipment was due back your student account will be invoiced for these charges. Student Accounts will uphold their unpaid account policy of restricting future registration and withholding release of transcripts and/or diplomas.

Lost, Damaged, Late OAP Gear Rental Fees
At the bottom of this page is The Outdoor Adventure Program's Gear Rental Contract that all students initial/sign online at our ActiveNet Software site before renting any gear from the program. It is also posted on the door of the OAP office as a reminder to all students who rent gear.

Can I submit an appeal for the lost, damage or late fees?

Yes, you can submit an appeal using the form below. This appeal form must be submitted to the Coordinator of Wellness and Recreation within 20 days of the date your equipment was due back. After 20 days, if you have not appealed the charges or submitted payment to Wellness and Recreation, your student account will be charged and no appeals will be accepted.

*Please Note*
You must bring your student ID to rent gear. No ID no gear. Gear is on a first come first served basis once OAP trip needs have been met.

Leader Bios

Ryan (Rye Guy): I’m the ultimate stoke man: always an 11 out of 10 on the stoke meter!! You can probably catch me on the mountain in a blizzard wearing nothing but American flag shorts, star stickers, and a snowboard.

Rowan: After being raised on the plains by a pack of peaceful coyotes, I developed an uncanny sense of smell. Sometimes the police call me in to help track people down. Don’t ask me to hang out if there’s a full moon, I’ve got plans with the pack!

Mary Frances: I recently discovered my hair changes color with my mood! I’m a pretty calm person, so usually it stays the same shade, but if you see it going towards maroon you should bring me some coffee or a cute puppy to calm me down.

Helen: When I was 13, I tried out for American Idol and they told me I was much louder than what they were looking for… Simon Cowell doesn’t know what he’s missing! You’ll usually hear my laugh across the quad, or across the plains from my house in Omaha, it’s my trademark mating call. My favorite thing to do is to share my headphones with everyone, so don’t be afraid to ask for them!

Korey: Hey everyone, you should know that I’m a big spice guy, big sausage guy, big group guy, and a big guy-guy. Join in on my big OAP fun! Also, my high school nominated me as the most likely to reach 7 feet tall. I’m still hopeful…

Dan: Namaste ya’ll! I started working for OAP after a brief stint with the Kentucky Rodeo Clown circuit. I had to leave because of a conflict of interest (I’m now a vegetarian), but I still go on road trips with them all in the clown car sometimes.

Grace (Glynch): I’d say I’m one of the most talented members on staff: I once ate an entire tennis ball over the course of a year and can fit over 20 mini chocolates in my mouth. I can get pretty knotty when it comes to sailing, and I often guide small crafts through storms using only my feet to steer. PSA: My dad is not a gopher!!!!!

Ship: There are good ships, there are bad ships, and there are ships that sail the sea. But the best ship is my ship, and the friendships you’ll make with me! Catch me landlocked in Colorado…

Masha: Last year, I discovered I have X-Ray vision! I grew up eating a lot of carrots (Bugs Bunny was my inspiration), so that’s probably where it came from. It can be really handy at times, but usually I keep my glasses on to control the power. My goal is to work for a hospital one day to reduce the use of radiation from X-ray machines!

Students who wish to submit an appeal for lost, damaged or late fees may do so by completing the form below.

The form must be submitted to the Coordinator of Wellness and Recreation within 20 days of the date your equipment was due back. After 20 days, if you have not appealed the charges or submitted payment to Wellness and Recreation, your student account will be charged and no appeals will be accepted.
