Mission Statement

As part of the campus recreation department, the Outdoor Program helps recruit and retain students, faculty and staff by providing a wide range of inclusive, safe, reasonably-priced Outdoor Programs and services to the UW community. We expose individuals to the natural environment, provide skill and leadership development opportunities, and facilitate interactions and fun.


The UW Outdoor Program is an authorized permit holder of the US Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the National Park Service. 

“We collectively acknowledge that the University of Wyoming occupies the ancestral and traditional lands of the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Crow, and Shoshone Indigenous peoples along with other Native tribes who call the Great Basin and Rocky Mountain region home. We recognize, support, and advocate alongside Indigenous individuals and communities who live here now, and with those forcibly removed from their Homelands.” -ASUW Senate Bill #2699
