Adventure Trips

To Register for any Trip:

Trips are open for all UNC Charlotte students, faculty, staff, and community members, unless otherwise noted.

1. Fill out a 2019-2020 Medical Form or have a 2019-2020 Medical Form already on file with Venture.

To find the Medical Form on Niner Engage:

  1. Log in to Niner Engage using your NinerNet credentials.
  2. Search for Venture Outdoor Leadership and select the appropriate Organization.
  3. Click Venture Medical History Form 2019-2020 under the Forms section.

PLEASE NOTE: You only need to fill out this Medical Form once for the entire year.

2. 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 e-mail from Venture if/when your registration is approved, and the e-mail will include the trip waiver for you to read and sign.  

Pre-Trip Meeting Attendance Policy:

For trips with a pre-trip meeting, attendance at the meeting is required.  Registered participants who miss the pre-trip meeting will be taken off the trip roster and are not guaranteed a refund.  Please keep this in mind when making decisions about participation.

Acquaint yourself with the seemingly alien cave environment on this trip to Tawney’s Cave near Blacksburg, VA.  The cave remains at a constant temperature in the 50s (Fahrenheit) all year long, and contains an underground creek, as well as many formations, bats, and more.  You will get wet and muddy on this trip, experience total darkness, and work with your team to travel safely through the cave on this adventurous day trip.
