Outdoor Fayetteville is an experiential based program designed to offer outdoor recreation opportunities for individuals and families who may not have the equipment or experience needed to enjoy the outdoors.

Outdoor Recreation provides numerous benefits to physical, mental and emotional health. Gaining life-long skills through experiential learning is a great way to build confidence, meet new people and improve existing relationships. This family-focused program will provide an outlet for individuals and families to build stronger relationships and connect with the outdoors while also building new skills under the guidance of experienced professionals.

Program offerings will include paddling, biking, hiking, backpacking and camping trips as well as skills clinics on bike maintenance, back-country cooking and wilderness travel. Participants will be taught the importance of planning and safety procedures through lessons on swift water rescue and wilderness medicine.
