The Outdoor Recreation Leadership degree prepares you to develop and lead outdoor recreation experiences. You’ll have the opportunity to apply leadership skills in a real-life setting. The Inland Northwest makes a phenomenal classroom to learn basic technical and leadership skills in activities such as backpacking, whitewater boating, winter camping, rock climbing, mountaineering, and expedition planning. Most classes include single-day and multi-day wilderness-based experiences in the Inland Northwest. You’ll also take classes to learn how to manage risk, budget programs, manage personnel, and more.
In addition to a degree, you will obtain other certificates relevant to the outdoor industry, such as the Leave No Trace Trainer, Wilderness First Aid, and Swiftwater Rescue through the American Canoe Association. This program is fully accredited by the National Recreation and Parks Association.
