Outdoor Adventure Program provides hiking, camping, team-building opportunities

The club traveled to New River Gorge National Park in West Virginia for spring break this year.

Christine Varga, the Outdoor Adventure Program’s faculty advisor, went on the ice climbing trip in February in Michigan.

Baldwin Wallace University has over 100 clubs and organizations, one of which is the Outdoor Adventure Program. 

Miles Heyse, an executive member of the Outdoor Adventure Program, said that the Outdoor Aventure Program is “kind of like a collection of multiple clubs.”

There are different branches within the program such as a climbing club and archery club along with the opportunity to attend various trips.  

On March 4, the club went on a spring break trip to The New River Gorge National Park and Preserve in West Virginia. Heyse has been there three times.

”I’ve been there in the fall and the spring. The fall was my longer stay. It was gorgeous. It was a four or five-day trip. We did cabin camping and tend camping,” Heyse said.  

Molly Cancian, the secretary for the Outdoor Adventure Program, said the Outdoor Aventure Program is enjoyable because a person can be a member and attend as little as one event per year.  There is no charge to be a member of the Outdoor Adventure Club, but different trips have various fees. 

One of the trips the club took in February was the ice-climbing trip in Michigan. This was Heyse’s first time ice climbing. Heyse said that this was the first time the trip had been done since 2019. 

Cancian said that the club does a weekly rock climbing trip and that they have had the opportunity to go to an adventure summit, which only happens every two years. At this past summit, Cancian did a presentation. 

”Presenting was really neat because it’s a really good experience, but it’s also really cool to connect with other people who love the outdoors,” Cancian said.  

As for her favorite memory on one of the programs’ trips, Cancian said that it would have to be the spring break trip in 2023.

Heyse said this trip was one of her favorite memories. 

“We had a lot of activities planned for that trip. We did outdoor rock climbing in the mountains,” Heyse said. “We did a rafting trip as well.” 

Heyse said that the majority of the fun came from the people in the group. Heyse said that everyone connected well with the others. 

The attendees ended up losing power in their rental cabin during a game of Mafia, also known as Werewolf. They could not see anything, and they were unable to get a hold of the rental cabin people.  

“So it fits in perfectly with our little Mafia game,” Cancian said.  

Canican said they continued playing games and talking until the power came back on. 

For the club’s goals, Cancian hopes that the program reaches more students.
