The Outdoor Adventure Services Program invites you to take a break from the rigors of daily life and experience some of our unique recreational and educational programs. Experience the vertical excitement of the indoor climbing wall, attend one of our hands on instructional clinics, or indulge your adventurous side on an outdoors trip. Through our climbing wall, workshops and clinics, as well as adventure trip programs, we help meet all the adventure needs of the University of Akron community.
