IDP Program

Interested in becoming a member of the Outdoor Adventures trip staff or learning valuable leadership skills? Our IDP program is for you! The IDP consists of multiple one hour clinics designed to develop skill and understanding in various leadership competencies needed to be an effective leader, particularly in the outdoors. 

Participants must take three Foundation classes, three Essential classes, and have been on, or take, two Outdoor Adventures trips to start apprenticing. Elective classes are optional but highly recommended! Each class is only an hour long - free to CSUB students, $5 for faculty and staff! Sign up at the SRC Front Desk.

Being an outdoor leader is more than being able to climb or paddle; it’s a partnership of passion, training and experience. The IDP will provide you with the tools to pursue a life of adventure. Whether you want to be Outdoor Adventures Trip Staff, work for camps or other adventure programs, or just looking to enhance your personal pursuits; IDP has something for everyone.
