Adventure Recreation


University Recreation's Adventure Recreation trips/outings are cooperative adventures aimed to empower people. Each participant is expected to act as an equal member of the group, regardless of skill level or prior experience. For this reason, it is extremely important that each person participate on trips suited to their skill level. Each participant must be capable of accurately and honestly assessing their skill level and openly communicating with the group. No person should ever participate in an activity in which they are not skilled or equipped to handle alone if necessary. University Recreation wants people to develop their own skills and self-reliance, to communicate and work as a group. This is much more rewarding than simply following a leader.
