Outdoor Recreation


Outdoor Recreation at Sam Houston State University is a multifaceted program consisting of five primary components:

Adventure Trips focus on having fun while exploring, experiencing, and learning in a variety of natural environments.

Clinics and Workshops allow you to learn new skills, get outside, and yet stay close to home.

The Climbing Center features a 35 foot climbing wall, bouldering island, and all the requisite gear for you to achieve new heights.   

Equipment Rental allow you to pursue your own adventures, whether it’s an afternoon on the river, or a week in the mountains.

Bearkat Camp is a spirit and traditions camp for incoming freshmen and transfer students.

University Camp is a one of a kind recreation and retreat facility that features cabins, dining facilities, sports fields, boating, ropes courses, biking and hiking trails, a lodge and meeting center. 

Our aim is to provide the university community the chance to live the life less ordinary.

So jump in, play hard… and get outside.
