The SJU Adventure Club is a student led organization developed to connect members of the Saint Joseph’s University community and provide opportunities to experience adventure in the outdoors.  The Adventure Club contributes to the university’s mission of experiential learning, using human powered outdoor pursuits to expand knowledge, leadership, service and community.

The Adventure Club has a four-fold mission:

  1. provide participants with exciting outdoor recreational opportunities
  2. develop new friendships, leadership qualities and increase interpersonal skills
  3. learn lifelong wilderness and technical skills
  4. expand appreciation and concern for our natural world

The Adventure Club is committed to fulfilling our financial and ethical responsibilities not only to our members, but also to our sponsors, partners, alumni and regulatory bodies.  We also affirm our commitment to the highest standards of safety, environmental stewardship, and responsibility in all our trips and events.
