Outdoor Leadership and Education


Take your education outdoors!

Lycoming College provides students with many opportunities to grow professionally and build leadership skills outside of the classroom through enhanced educational experiences. Toward that end, the college launched its Outdoor Leadership and Education program in 2016.

Learning while doing is one of the most effective ways to gain and apply new knowledge and skills. Lycoming Outdoor Leadership and Education is committed to providing students with opportunities to learn and grow through intentionally-designed outdoor experiences in an adventure-filled, fun environment.
