Outdoor Club camping tripsFrom a trip participant's description of a Yosemite summer trip:
"The night skies were brilliant with stars, as the De Anza students huddled around a campfire and attempted to map the constellations to those in the guide books. On the last night, each student took turns acknowledging the best part of the trip for them. For some, it was the swimming hole; for many, the hike and the views. But each remarked that it was indubitably the company of the strangers-turned-friends that made the adventures worthwhile."
Our main yearly camping trips are to Yosemite and Grand Teton national parks.
