Do you want to get outside and explore the Madison area, but don't know where to begin? Join us on an adventure!

Event Information

Dates: April 16-18, 2021

All Out! is a FREE weekend of programming focused on introducing UW-Madison students to the outdoors. Co-sponsored by the Social Justice Hub, All Out! is intended for students with minimal experience in the outdoors and who face barriers to accessing outdoor recreational activities. The goal is to provide the knowledge, skills, and community for students to feel comfortable and confident participating in outdoor activities in the future.

It will consist of an in-person hike and community-building activities, virtual discussions, and information sessions. There will be a raffle with prizes, including outdoor gear donated by local businesses: Fjällräven Madison, REI, Fontana Sports, and the Ice Age Trail Alliance.
