Make 2021 your year to have some wild and wonderful fun outdoors.

Adventure awaits you this Spring and Summer. After a long, hard Winter inside, there is no better time to plan thrilling journeys outside, where you can stay socially distant while still having the time of your life. While hiking is always fun, why not make these adventures more interesting by picking up a new and exciting hobby? Don’t learn by trial and error; instead, attend an Adventure WV Workshop to learn the basics and find the recreational activity perfect for you. 

All workshops this semester are free and cover a variety of fun and interesting skills that will aid you in future adventures. Whether you want to learn a whole new skill like mountain biking or something to aid the adventures you are used to, like the ski and snowboard tuning workshop back in February, there is something for everyone to learn.

Workshops have been happening all semester and will continue until the beginning of May. There is something for everyone to try: Mountain Bike Skills, Bike Maintenance, Outdoor Aerial Extravaganza and Climbing Rope Skills! No previous experience is required; everyone is learning together!

Adventure WV workshops are focused, hands-on, two-hour sessions that will teach you the basics when it comes to each skill and activity. While every workshop is free, registration is required through WVUGo.
