The goal of the Outdoor Recreation Program is to provide engaging instructional opportunities in a wide range of outdoor adventure activities. Our programs and opportunities serve the community in the following ways:

  • Providing enjoyable adventure experiences that embrace experiential learning
  • Creating an atmosphere where group experiences foster a sense of team
  • Providing instructional foundations in a wide range of outdoor activities
  • Focusing on safety issues and manage inherent risks associated with outdoor recreation activities
  • Providing and promoting opportunities for environmental appreciation and stewardship

The Outdoor Recreation Program offers classes, clinics, and trips throughout the City and the Triangle. You can register for any outdoor recreation program online using RecLink, in person at any staffed facility, or by calling the Outdoor Recreation office at 919-996-6855.
