Outback Adventures has been providing UCSD and the greater San Diego community with excellent programs and services since 1978.
Back in 1978, there was a great idea to start renting out camping equipment to students, staff and faculty. We started out renting equipment from a closet in the Rec Gym. Now, more than 30 years later and through much effort by the students and staff of Outback, we’ve expanded to our current locations: the tree house down in Pepper Canyon, climbing center at Canyonview, Surf Shop in Price Center West, and Odyssey Challenge Course in the Eucalyptus forest near Spanos Track.
