MTOP - Middle Tennessee Outdoor Pursuits

The MTOP  Program is dedicated to leadership, education, teamwork, relationships, and adventure. Outdoor programs are offered to appeal to multiple interests and multiple levels of expertise. From whitewater rafting or kayaking, rock climbing or caving, hiking or backpacking, there is something for YOU!

The climbing wall is open almost every evening during the semester, and other clinics are offered periodically to help you develop skills. 

No matter if you are a beginner or experienced leader, our whole goal is to get you outside!
