POCATELLO – This fall the Idaho State University Outdoor Adventure Center is offering free first-time trips to students for a wide variety of outdoor fun.

“We want to give all the Idaho State University students access to the Outdoor Adventure Center and we understand there are certain financial limitations that might keep some of students from being able to participate,” said Justin Dayley, Outdoor Adventure Center director.

ISU students can sign up for one free outing this semester.

A deposit is required, but will be refunded after participating. Space is limited, so students should sign up early for the first-come, first-served trips.

This offer is for students will valid Bengal cards only, and not for ISU faculty and staff.

“We require students to put up a credit-card participation deposit, but we don’t charge them unless they don’t participate,” Dayley said. “We are trying to avoid students that say they want to go and then don’t show up, and then another student is deprived of the opportunity to go on a trip.”
