Join us on an adventure in the Rockies! We'll spend 4 days backpacking in the high Rockies with the possibility of a peak attempt, 1 day outdoor rock climbing and 1 day kayaking the Colorado River in duckies, all while preparing our own group meals and carrying all of our gear! The trip wraps up with a large BBQ party with live music in Keystone, Colorado. This is an excellent way to begin your experience at CU and a perfect opportunity to form new friendships. No previous outdoor experience is necessary. CU in the Rockies has been running for over 20 years!

CU in the Rockies was a great experince! I enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors for eight days. I made new friends who I still go hiking with and created memories that I will remember for a lifetime.
