HPU Outdoor Discovery

HPU Outdoor Discovery aims to provide activities that are designed to present students with new experiences that will build friendships that could last a lifetime. Best of all every activity and trip that we put together is complimentary to all High Point University Students.

The HPU Outdoor Discovery team loves ADVENTURE and we love taking people along with us. We enjoy the challenges, adrenaline and beauty of being outside and discovering the outdoors. Outdoor Discovery is a way for High Point University Students to experience firsthand challenges, excitement and adventure. We will go on all kinds of adventures like backpacking/ camping trips, rock climbing trips, day hikes, and ski trips just to name a few.

HPU Outdoor Discovery has a high and low Ropes Challenge Course!  The course, which includes some physically demanding tasks, provides exhilarating, yet safe experience for students to test their ability to creatively solve problems – skills that are crucial in any working environment.  The course provides a challenging experience that reinforces the ideals of teamwork and builds confidence and leadership skills.

Please stop by the HPU Rec office for further information on these planned adventures!
