Outdoor Education & Recreation Leadership

Feeling is believing for outdoor adventurers. That's why they're often caught daydreaming through classes. Instead of figuring math equations or subject/verb conjugations, they're looking out the window, planning their next hike, kayaking trip or climbing expedition.

Sound familiar? Turn your daydreams into an education in the best place of all — the Rocky Mountain West. You'll never have to wait in line because there are fewer people and more places to go. We can even direct you on to some of America's last virgin waters for kayaking!
