Outdoor Programs

Through participating in seemingly random adventures, individuals learn to triumph over their perceptions of limitations and abilities.

Mission

The Outdoor Programs department provides the Landmark College community with activities and classes at the ropes course, indoor rock climbing wall, as well as at many recreational sites in Northern New England. The goal of the department is to foster leadership, self-advocacy, and social growth through recreational activities. We strive to provide challenging activities that evoke creative thinking and personal growth through lifelong recreational opportunities.
