Spring 2021 -

ROPE is adjusting its offerings as the university and community grapple with the the ongoing public health crisis. While transportation and overnight options remain limited, we will continue to offer rental options for independent excursions as well as Park & Play trips where participants can meet up at a central location and independently explore with social families.
