A brief description of the program:

The VCU Sports Recreation's Outdoor Adventure Program ()AP) serves VCU students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests by providing low-cost outdoor activity-based trips, including whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, canoeing, caving, hiking, backpacking and skiing. On all of the trips every effort is taken to leave the campsite in better condition than it was found to be in. The Outdoor Adventure Program takes the steps to ensure that no one leaves any trash or harms the environment on their trips.
