Feedback

Many customers want to share their stories about their experiences on one of our programs/trips—and we want to hear them! Submit a photo (or two) with a blurb about your adventure to outdoorm@ucalgary.ca. There’s a good chance that your story will end up in one of our upcoming program guides (only with your permission, of course)!  If your story gets published, then you’ll be instantly famous (and you’ll receive a free rentals gift certificate to boot).
