What To Expect

Common Class

Students in the OA-LLC will take one cohort class per semester. Courses in the past have included Backpacking & Camping, Paddle Sports, Beginning Mountain Biking, Outdoor Certifications, Challenge Course Facilitation and Outdoor Adventure Activities.

First Weekend Retreat

Students will begin their year in the OA-LLC with events to welcome them into the program.This will be a great time to meet the staff of the OA-LLC, get familiar with your fellow students and your new surroundings as well as get detailed information about all that the Outdoor Adventure LLC has to offer through optional and required activities.

Day Trips

We will take some amazing trips throughout the year! As part of the adventure sports class, we will take 3 day trips throughout the semester to local adventure areas such as climbing at Riemers Ranch or biking in Cameron Park

Fall Break

The first semester course will culminate with fall break trip.  Each student will specialize and take a 3-day/2-night trip to delve deeper in the experience of one adventure sport.  

Social Events

And of course we'll have some fun! This will just be scheduled time to hang out, chill, and have a good time with your fellow students. Movies nights, coffee breaks, Christmas parties, disc golf, bouldering and climbing at the ROCK, just to name a few.

Optional Activities

In addition to the required elements of the OA-LLC, there will be many more optional opportunities for you to get more hands-on experiences in the field. We hope you will participate in some or all of these as well. For example: Wilderness First Responder Courses, Spring Break trips, Bear Climb competition, May-mester 21-day wilderness tripping course
