  • Welcome

    Welcome to Outdoor Adventures!

    Outdoor Adventures (OA) is a budding division of UREC that was created in August of 2010.  It was created to provide opportunities for adventure education in the form of human-powered pursuits (e.g. rock climbing, backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, etc.).

    Currently, OA facilitates these opportunities in the form of six programming areas:

    In addition to Outdoor Adventures’ eight goals, each program incorporates industry standards and teaches Leave No Trace minimal impact practices.

    Whether you are an Eagle Scout or not, Outdoor Adventures welcomes participants of all skill levels and experience.  The trained staff of OA will guide you through each program from start to finish based upon your experience level.

    Come, experience a new approach to wellness and sign up for your adventure that begins here at Angelo State University!

  • Mission & Vision

    Outdoor Adventures Mission Statement

    By utilizing adventure education-based programming experiences, Outdoor Adventures strives to provide opportunities to promote self-efficacy, leadership qualities, and pro-social bonds to the Angelo State University community.

    Vision

    Outdoor Adventures hopes to operationalize its mission by offering six, main programming areas: Indoor Rock Climbing Gym, Team Building Experiences, ASU Lake House Facility, Outdoor Trips, Educational Clinics, and Equipment Rental.  These six areas will provide the environment in which campus community members can de-stress from the pressures of campus life; thus, allowing them to refocus and build greater social ties to the University.  Participants of Outdoor Adventures programming will take charge, and learn what it means to seek an adventurous lifestyle.

    Goals

    In alliance with Angelo State University and University Recreation’s mission statements, Outdoor Adventures’ end goal is to provide responsible citizens leading to having productive careers.  Thus, Outdoor Adventures fosters the following eight specific goals that support the development of citizenship and productive careers: accountability, communication skills, leadership qualities, metacognition, open-mindedness, problem-solving skills, professionalism, and various technical skills.  Although each program might have slightly varied learning outcomes, these are the eight tent poles that provide the foundation to every Outdoor Adventures program.
