The PSU Outdoor Center is an experiential education-based program that serves as a catalyst for personal and professional growth. In addition to offering an equipment use program with skis, snowshoes, paddling, and camping gear, the Outdoor Center sponsors trips, clinics, and trainings run under a cooperative adventure model using human powered outdoor activities to connect students with their surrounding outdoor environment. Students experience empowerment, goal achievement, and group support by moving beyond their own expectations. Based on a challenge-by-choice philosophy, all activities are voluntary, empowering each person to perform to her or his potential, securely and without pressure.
