At night tents are set up with lights inside of them. Students are spelling out UWF OA using lights outside of the tents.

Outdoor Adventures trips and events are open to current UWF students, UWF faculty and staff and their guests.

Outdoor Adventure Passport

Find your Happy Place.  Outdoor Adventures is inviting you to take a trip outside and explore the world around you.  We are offering an incentive program for participants to explore the natural beauty of the UWF campus and surrounding Nature Preserves and State Parks system.  

5 locations = OA T-shirt of choice

10 Locations = OA Camp Mug

*Limited number of prizes*

Please email us at with a picture(s) of your experience at any of the listed locations below or a destination all your own. As long as you are outside in nature and having a great time, it will count toward reaching your goal of 10 outdoor locations by the end of the semester.

Happy Exploring Adventurers!
