Beginner-Friendly Day Hike

Pre-Trip: There is no pre-trip meeting for this trip. All information, including waiver, will be communicated to approved participants via e-mail in the days leading up to the program.

Meet new people, learn outdoor skills and experience nature on this beginner-friendly day hike. The focus of this trip will be teaching the basic skills needed to capably plan hikes of one’s own, how to navigate using a map and compass, and how to enjoy the outdoors while minimizing impact on the natural environment and “leaving no trace.” Take a leap of faith to try out something new in a positive and supportive community environment.

The registration deadline for this trip is Tuesday, Feb. 11 at noon.

To complete registration for this trip:

  • Fill out a 2019-20 Medical Form or have a 2019-20 Medical Form already on file with Venture (please note: you must only fill out one medical form per academic year).
  • Log in to Niner Engage using your NinerNet credentials. (Non-UNC Charlotte participants: e-mail Brian Holcomb at to request a paper medical form)
  • Search for Venture Outdoor Leadership and select the appropriate Organization.
  • Click Venture Medical History Form 2019-20 under the Forms section.
  • Pay online or with cash or check in the Venture Office (225 Cone University Center).

When you pay, you'll have the opportunity to list the trip(s) for which you're registering.

Spaces on this trip are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Your registration is not complete until both steps are finished!

Registration deadlines are (with rare exceptions) noon on Tuesday the week before the trip--this gives our University physician time to review your medical form.

You will receive a confirmation email from Venture if/when your registration is approved, and the email will include the trip waiver for you to read and sign.
