Venture Hiking and Adventure Trips Scheduled
Throughout this month, the Venture program is conducting a number of outdoor adventure trips open to the UNC Charlotte and greater communities. Participants can enjoy excursions that range from canoeing to hiking. Experience is not required, and instruction is provided to prepare for trip activities.
Venture trips are led by highly qualified staff members who not only recognize an exciting adventure but facilitate learning from the experience. "The outdoors is a perfect place to expand your comfort zone and grow as a person," said Brian Holcomb, assistant director for Venture trips. "We seek to provide opportunities to practice self-reliance, improve physical fitness, build community and develop skills that facilitate success in the backcountry and in life."
