The programs advised by the Colorado College Outdoor Education Department provide CC students with opportunities for real world challenge, adventure, leadership, and service outside of the classroom. Programs and initiatives conducted by Outdoor Education enhance the knowledge, skills, and leadership development of students through outdoor and community service experiences.
We strive to serve anyone and everyone interested in participating in Colorado College's Outdoor Education program; whether it is being a part of the program as a leader, a participant, or simply being a member of one of the many student organizations such as the Outdoor Recreation Committee. The Office of Outdoor Education seeks to provide inclusive and exciting outdoor experiences for all interested students. If you have any questions about the accessibility of our programs or feel inhibited from participating in any way, please contact us or drop by to see us about helping to meet your needs so we can create the best experience possible.
Wilderness First Responder Courses!
Every January, approximately 120 Colorado College students either re-new or obtain their Wilderness First Responder Certification, which is a record within the U.S., according to the Wilderness Medicine Institute! This course provides students with an abundance of wilderness-specific knowledge, while allowing them to practice their skills in hands-on realistic medical scenarios.
Come February we always feel a little bit safer knowing that we have 120 new WFRs ready to put their newly-learned skills to practice!
