Mercer Outdoors

Please note: Mercer Outdoor events are based from the Macon Campus. Atlanta students are welcome to attend. However, Atlanta students may need to arrange their own travel to Macon or to the trip location.

Outdoor Adventures is committed to providing excellent outdoor travel opportunities. Our goal is to challenge self-perceived limits, have fun, and build a strong appreciation for the natural environment. We believe that small group wilderness experiences have a unique impact on the lives of our trip participants.
