PCC Outdoor Adventure Leadership Program promotes and organizes field-based outdoor adventure expeditions. Focusing on how small group dynamic contribute understanding the humanities of leadership. It is a specialized program for all PCC students interested in leadership development and a more intensive outdoor experience.
The Pueblo Community College Outdoor Adventure Leadership Program provides students an opportunity for personal growth, intellectual stimulation and leadership skills through outdoor adventure experiences.
The Program serves PCC students by providing low-cost outdoor activity-based trips, including whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, canoeing, caving, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding.
Trip participants vary by activity and location. Most trips are a mix of students with some staff and faculty. Most trips are designed to introduce beginners to an activity and require participants to be in good physical condition. Individuals interested in trips can sign up at the PCC Recreation Center located in the Student Center Lower Level.
Trip leaders are students who have completed our Outdoor Adventure Leadership Program and acquired the necessary experience to guide the trips they have been assigned.
