The Student Experience Adventure Leadership semester, or SEALs, was created for students to pursue outdoor leadership and learn the skills needed to teach outdoor adventures to others.

Taught by the full-time staff of Outdoor Adventures, this semester-long course is a mixture of classroom, on-campus, and field-based leadership training to help students learn the methodology for managing groups and teaching them the technical skills required for outdoor recreation.

The Student Experience Adventure Leadership semester is an in-depth, long-term, and exciting leadership development program. SEALs is unlike any other course or training program you ever had. You’ll learn how to handle real situations, learn how to paddle, kayak, surf, navigate at sea or on land, backpack, and be ready for life in college and after graduation.
