Trips

Our Outdoor Adventure trips have limited spots available, and many trips fill up quickly. If a trip does fill, we will maintain a wait-list for anyone interested. There is no fee for putting your name on the wait-list. Like stand-by for flying, we HIGHLY encourage interested individuals to be at the Rec. Center prior to the trip departure, and we will accept individuals in to open spots first in the order of the wait-list, and next in the order of the time they sign in that morning. Payment for the trip occurs only if you get to participate.

You can register in the front office of the Student Recreation Center or over the phone at 973-655-3340. Tickets can be purchased in the Student Recreation Center Office Monday - Friday 8am - 8pm or Saturday 11am - 5pm.
