Gearing up for the Adventure Education Program at Fort Lewis College Fall 2011

The B.A. Adventure Education Program here in Durango CO is getting ready to welcome the largest group of students yet to be enrolled at Fort Lewis College since the program’s inception in 2007!     We are psyched for another great year of students who want to use the outdoors as a career in Adventure Education that will keep them in the great outdoors and provide a service to others as well. 

When you major in Adventure Ed, we provide all group gear—tarps and tents, cooking equipment, food, first aid kits, a satellite phone, maps, GPS devices, etc. You need to provide your own personal gear such as backpack, sleeping bag and pad, hiking boots, clothing, etc  Please find listed below some good resources for you to find your own personal gear:
