Outdoor Programs Logo

The University of Redlands Outdoor Programs strives to help students make meaningful connections to the natural world. We teach the skills of wilderness leadership through outdoor activities, but use these experiences as a tool for students to learn about themselves and others. It is our hope that our students will develop a lifelong commitment to healthy outdoor pursuits and environmental conservation. No prior experience in any activity is necessary.

The University of Redlands Outdoor Programs promotes Leave No Trace environmental ethics in all we do. We teach our students to enjoy outdoor recreation responsibly to ensure that future generations will continue to be able to do so.
