About WFU Outdoor Pursuits 

Outdoor Pursuits is Wake Forest Campus Recreation’s outdoor adventure program! We are dedicated to helping the Wake Forest community get outside and enjoy the wilderness.

Outdoor Pursuits offers everything from weekend trips to an on-campus climbing facility. Everyone is welcome, no experience is necessary! We hope see you on our next adventure! Come visit us on the ground floor of the newly constructed Sutton Center.  To access OP, come to the rear of the Sutton Center and use the concrete steps.  Our entrance is the lone single door at the bottom of the stairs (Adjacent to the big garage door).  We’re down here to serve your outdoor needs.

Please feel free to give us a call for more information about our program opportunities!  You can reach Outdoor Pursuits at (336)758-6046.


Outdoor Pursuits programs a wide variety of trips in a vast array of locations. We offer day hiking, rock climbing, back packing, whitewater kayaking, and more. If skydiving is on your bucket list, we can help you out with that too! Past trip locations include North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, the Grand Canyon, Italy, Spain, Greece, Corsica, and New Zealand.
