    Outdoor Adventure – Let’s get outdoors!   Outdoor Adventure trips include outings such as hiking one of the many state parks, mountain biking or zip lining around Hot Springs, rock climbing the beautiful Ozarks, fishing on a crystal clear lake, exploring caves, horseback riding along a beautiful valley or camping in the great outdoors!

    Water Adventure – Looking to cool off this August?  We have you covered with one of our Water Adventure orientation trips!  Float down the river on one of our many canoeing trips, spend the day on the lake tubing and water skiing, or spend some time rafting the White River.      

    Urban Adventure – Let’s hit the town!  Looking to explore and learn more about local culture?  Urban Adventure trips offer the opportunity to visit art museums, take part in creative activities, see local attractions and what makes our state unique!

    Service Adventure- Wanna give back to the community? Looking to explore the town of Fayetteville? This Service trip offers you the opportunity to do both! This trip lends a hand at Apple Seeds Teaching farms in Northwest Arkansas.
