Meet the Leaders

Student Leaders-Apply Now!

Apply to lead a SOAP trip 

We are always looking for new SOAP trip ideas and people to lead others out into nature.

If you are interested in becoming a SOAP leader, click Apply Now to fill out a SOAP Leader Application and tell us your trip ideas.

Don't worry, you don't have to be an outdoor leadership major to apply!

If you don't have a new trip you would like to lead but are interested in leading one of our "staple" trips, let us know.
