What To Expect
Common ClassStudents in the Outdoor Adventure 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 Outdoor Adventure LLC with events to welcome them into the program. During this time we ask the question, "Who are we and what are we going to be about this year".
We will take some amazing trips throughout the year! As part of the adventure sports class in the first semester, we will take 2 required trips to local adventure areas such as climbing at Reimers Ranch or kayaking on the San Marcos river.
Each Fall break we run two optional Outdoor Adventure LLC trips; backpacking in Arkansas and Exploring Wichita Wildlife Refuge, Oklahoma. Both trips provide a great respite from classwork, engagement with fellow students, and immersion in the beauty of Fall.
Spring break is for those that want to take their outdoor adventure experiences to deeper levels. Each spring we run two trips to national parks in the West. Past trips have been backpacking in the Grand Canyon and climbing in the world class area of Joshua Tree.
And of course, we'll have some social fun! This will just be scheduled time to hang out, chill, and have a good time with your fellow students. Movie nights, coffee breaks, Christmas parties, disc golf, bouldering and climbing at the ROCK, just to name a few.
In addition to the required elements of the Outdoor Adventure 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 Minimester 21-day Wilderness Tripping Course
