What we're about

OutdoorAdventure.org was founded in 2015. We provide opportunities for members to take part in many types of exciting and challenging outdoor activities year-round such as camping, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, skiing, shelter building, canoeing and much more...

Manitoba has a variety of landscapes from prairies to rolling hills and from lake to desert-like environments; there are many adventures that awaits your exploration! We have events every week with overnight camping once a month year-round.

We also have four base camp workshops a year, one for each season, where members learn how to build primitive shelters and have the opportunity to sleep in them.

MISSION STATEMENT:
Document the beauty of Manitoba's four season wilderness, while highlighting the importance of environmental sustainability, climate change and our ability to adapt. As a result, most events are video recorded and photographed. This group prides itself in the joy of exploring the outdoors with the ability to accomplish challenging terrain through self-determination, trust and cooperation.

FEATURES:
- Season's calendar with organized events;
- Discussion forums (message board);
- Member discounts from sponsors;
- Event comment sections;
- Video recorded outings;
- Equipment rentals;
- Photo albums;
- Meal Plans.

DIFFICULTY BREAK-DOWN:

LEVEL OF SKILLS:
