The Outdoor Pursuits Diversity Statement
The staff of Outdoor Adventure encourage an inclusive, open and welcoming atmosphere by designing and offering challenging programs for all skill levels. We endeavor to maintain a program that includes and welcomes people of all races, creeds, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, learning styles, economic levels, ages, regions of origin and physical abilities. 

We recognize that all participants bring a level of experience, skill and ability. We will not make assumptions about others’ ability, interest or experience in the outdoors.

This statement is the result of the collaborative efforts of the Outdoor Adventure staff.
