Outdoor Adventure

Some education experiences at TWU are bigger than even Texas. Ride the whitewater rapids of Colorado, dive deep into the warm waters of Hawaii, or ski the freshly-fallen powder in Canada’s Rocky Mountains.

There’s a big world outside of Denton and the Outdoor Adventure Program aims to help you explore it. We provide low-cost trips, equipment rentals, and travel resources to the greater TWU community all to help you experience and appreciate the outdoors.
