About Center Activities

Since 1980, Center Activities has continued to provide quality instruction in a variety of recreational outdoor and leisure activities to both the Humboldt State University campus and surrounding community. Whether you are looking for a certification program, a leisure activity, outdoor adventure or equipment rental, or want to take the first steps toward learning a new skill, we’ll help you reach your goal. Center Activities manages three facilities including the Outdoor Center, Student Recreation Center and the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center. You can find us in HSU's Recreation and Wellness Center Room 101.  

Outdoor and Aquatic Equipment Rentals: We have the gear you need! Reservations are suggested as equipment is rented on a first-come, first-serve basis. Receive 50% off regular price when renting equipment for one of our scheduled adventures. See the Equipment Rental Guide for pricing, policies, and available equipment.

Outdoor Information: Information on recreational opportunities in Northern California and Oregon is available in the form of maps, brochures and books. Come by and speak with a Center Activities staff member if you would like assistance planning your own outings.

Private Trips: Have friends or a special group looking for an adventure? Want to explore a particular trail system or waterway but need us to lead the way? We are happy to help plan your custom trip. Please contact us for more information and pricing!
