Limitless adventure awaits.
The adventures are near and the routes are waiting! Poly Escapes offers student-led trips and low-cost equipment rentals to start your unforgettable journey.
Wilderness First Aid Training
Join ASI Poly Escapes for American Red Cross Wilderness First Aid Training! Designed for outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who works or spends time in remote environments, this course teaches advanced skills to be used in emergencies when help from professional first responders may be far away.
Reach new heights at the Poly Escapes Climbing Park at the Cal Poly Recreation Center. Whether you’re a new climber or a seasoned veteran, our 50-foot climbing wall and bouldering wall are designed to offer climbing opportunities to all skill levels.
Experience the outdoors on a guided trip with Poly Escapes! Student trip leaders receive 12 to 18 months of training and take participants to destinations including Big Sur, Yosemite National Park, and Death Valley National Park. A variety of trip types are available for day-trippers and weekend warriors alike.
Due to COVID-19, Poly Escapes will not be offering in-person trips during the 2021–22 academic year. For questions regarding the trip program or trip leader applications, please email Sarah Sindel, Coordinator—Outdoor Recreation.
Indigenous Land Acknowledgment
ASI Poly Escapes is proud to announce the Indigenous Land Acknowledgement Project, developed by Rental Center Student Manager Nahla Sturm-Wang. Nahla created this series after recognizing the need to educate community members about the national, state, and recreational park areas visited by ASI Poly Escapes trips.
Gear up for your next adventure. Students and off-campus community members can take advantage of our low-cost equipment rentals by visiting the Rental Center at the Cal Poly Recreation Center for a variety of camping, hiking, paddling, surfing, backpacking, and climbing gear.
