Outing Club Reunion

Calling all adventure-lovers! Join us back in Lexington for the first Outing Club reunion weekend.

The Mountains are Calling...

Our inaugural Outing Club Reunion Adventure Weekend HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

It will be packed with outdoor activities, including paddling the James River, mountain biking, hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains and reliving some of our favorite W&L memories from the Outing Club. This weekend is geared towards adventure-loving, active adults who are ready to roll up their sleeves, sweat and even camp over night!

All activities begin at the moderate difficulty level, and space is limited to 25 alumni. We can't wait to reunite with our Outing Club leaders as we return to some of our favorite outdoor haunts.
