Outdoor Adventure Program

The Outdoor Adventure Program provides opportunities for students to have fun, exciting, adventure based experiences.  The philosophy of the Outdoor Adventure program is to provide for the cultural and physical development of students in a wide-range of outdoor pursuits and environmental settings.
