Outdoor Recreation


We will be closed from July 17 to July 30 for facility renovations.

Plan Your Own Adventure!

The FSC outdoor recreation program offers students a variety of fun outdoor activities, such as bicycling, horseback riding, kayaking, and rock climbing.

These trips are a great way to meet new friends who share similar interests and to learn new skills. One day excursions, overnight trips, and break trips enable participants to enjoy the real Florida at its state parks and recreational facilities.
