“OWA is a great experience in a beautiful part of Colorado. All the counselors are really helpful, fun, and flexible. They help you safely step outside of your comfort zone and personalize your experience. I became close with other campers and built good relationships”- Sage, age 14

Outdoor Wilderness Adventure trips, camps and expeditions are designed to provide high quality, in-depth instruction in a range of outdoor adventure activities, great opportunities for personal growth and lots of fun. We specialize in rock and alpine climbing, mountain biking, backpacking and backcountry travel. OWA is noted as a leader in serious adventure instruction and education for motivated beginners as well as experienced adventurers. We are THE place for focusing on actual skill development while we have a great time, build lasting friendships and help each person grow as an individual.

OWA summer programs generally originate at the Denver airport then travel to a variety of locations in Central Colorado and Wyoming. Some programs take place in central Texas and we meet “at location” we also have options for international destination and custom programs in several other states and areas. Many programs do not require previous experience, but participants should be prepared for an active experience in a relatively remote setting.

OWA leads the way in Texas climbing adventures and other outdoor education activities, we run a variety of programs for all skill levels in the Lonestar state.  From our home base in Dripping Spring, the gateway to hill country adventure!

We really do what we say we do–and that means real, live, active adventure!

OWA provides most gear including backpacks, climbing gear, mountain bikes, and tents. Along with transportation to and from the closest Airport we also provide great food and some of the best guides and leaders in the business! We limit our group sizes to a small number for a safe and personal experience. If you would like to see our current summer camp schedule, please click here.
