About the Experience

The Outdoor Education and Leadership (OEL) program at Bucknell University provides opportunities, education, and experiences for outdoor adventure.

OEL oversees a variety of outdoor opportunities that are available to students, staff, and faculty. The climbing wall, challenge course, outing club trips, bison bikes, and rental center are all run through Outdoor Education and Leadership. You can find us at our Basecamp, in Tustin. Come say hi!
