Outdoor Programs

Campus Recreation Outdoor Programs is opening our Fall semester Monday August 30th, 2021.

To best meet the needs of our students and campus community, Campus Recreation facilities, classes, and activities, will only be available for currently registered students, faculty, and staff.  OLLI members, Alumni, Spouses/Dependents, and Affiliate members, as well as Guests, can find more information by visiting COVID-19 Modifications.

UNC Asheville Outdoor Programs is the outdoor resource for the campus community. Stop by to register for a trip, or check out our extensive line of outdoor gear rentals. From land to water and everything in between, UNC Asheville Outdoor Programs has something to offer everyone! Our program is built on human powered adventure since the 1980’s.

Our goal is to enhance the liberal arts experience with outdoor adventures. To do this, we provide diverse opportunities to expand your horizon through new social interactions, environmental stewardship, and stepping outside your comfort zone. By using the foundations of experiential education, we foster the development of leadership skills and outdoor ethics in our student leaders and participants.
