Adventure Education

Welcome! The adventure education program is available to WCU-students through academic programs and student involvement initiatives, along with non-WCU entities through corporate event opportunities.

The objectives of adventure education are personal and team growth. Participants in any adventure education program will encounter challenges that will strengthen their skills in teamwork, leadership, and self-reliance. All challenge course experiences are developed to suit the specific needs and goals of the group.

Through the years, the adventure education program has welcomed corporate groups, religious groups, school students, school administrators and teachers, day camps, Greek organizations, athletic teams and families. Each has seen the value of hands-on learning done in the beautiful outdoors. We encourage you to learn more and plan your own experience.

The cost of adventure experiences varies based on several factors including size of the group, activities selection, affiliation with WCU and length of program. Please contact either coordinator of the adventure program for more information on pricing.

Ground Initiatives

Ground initiatives take place on the ground but do not be fooled by their commonplace name, they are often quite challenging and can promote learning as much as low or high initiatives. Our adventure facilitators can employ a seemingly limitless number of activities depend on a group’s needs and goals.

Low Elements

These challenges do involve getting your feet off the ground and often employ permanent structures designed for challenge courses.

High Elements

These challenges take place higher off the ground and involve the use of a harness and belay system. WCU is fortunate to have an outstanding array of low and high elements.
