Climbing Wall

The climbing wall is a great way to learn a new skill, improve your current skills, and make new friends. The first wall is our 45-foot climbing wall with four auto-belay stations and 13 manual belay set-ups. The second wall is our 12-foot boulder wall, containing over 40 climbing problems. Both walls have a wide variety of route difficulties suitable for beginner to advanced climbers and everything in between.

You need no previous experience to climb the wall and all equipment needed is included at no extra cost. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to answer any questions, teach you everything you need to know about climbing and provide an engaging educational experience.

Please fill out a waiver prior to visiting. A parent or guardian must sign your waiver if you are under 18.

Disc Golf Course

Our 18-hole disc golf course is located at the Outdoor Adventure Center. We have a limited number of discs available for students to check out. The course features a mixture of long-open fairways to short-technical holes and weaves through a thick forest surrounding the challenge course. There are 36 concrete tee pads and 36 basket positions that are rotated monthly. The fairways are open to the public to play or walk.

Challenge Course

The challenge course offers adventure-based learning opportunities to enhance leadership, decision-making, and communication skills through an interactive process for team building. This hands-on approach is designed to help individuals learn from their interactions with others and then apply those principles to their life situations.

Hike and Bike Trails

The trail is located on the south side of Culver across from the Outdoor Adventure Center and just west of Cain Sports Complex. The trail is open to the public and provides scenic fitness opportunities away from busy streets. The Outdoor Adventure Center offers free bike rental for day use on the trail, clinics, and group rides to help develop good mountain biking skills and connect groups of bikers.
