Outdoor Adventures

The Vital Outdoor Adventure Program exists to get students outside and explore God’s creation. The program consists of monthly guided trips that are open to all students of all experience levels as well as a community of friends that explore together on their own time. We hike, paddle, rock climb, fish, camp, backpack, cycle, and everything else that gets us outside.
