About the Program
Sitting behind a desk, pushing a pencil, and negotiating business deals isn't everybody's dream of landing the perfect job. If you are the type of person who craves fresh air, adventure, and a close relationship with the natural environment, then outdoor recreation may be the career for you.
As an outdoor recreation professional, you may work in a variety of areas including camps, outdoor or environmental education programs, parks, and adventure programs. Although you will likely work in an outdoor setting, you will often perform administrative duties such as planning and supervising the work of others. You may work with children, adults, community groups, families, and people with disabilities.
