Outdoor Recreation

The Outdoor Recreation program provides physical, mental and emotional challenges resulting in social interaction, improved physical health, well being and increased knowledge. Adults have the opportunity to participate in hikes, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, rafting, fishing and many more outdoor activities. Our day trips and overnight trips allow adults to visit wilderness and escape from the routine and pressure of daily life to enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature.
