Why We're Here

Let's face it: there's never a bad time to get outside. Outdoor Recreation at Whitworth University offers a wide variety of adventurous opportunities throughout the school year. Our growing program offers hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, snowshoeing, skiing & snowboarding, mountaineering, ice climbing, and mountain biking. We seek to connect students with one another and the surrounding area through new and exciting ways of experiencing the great outdoors.
