Life Outdoors

The New England College Adventure Bound Club is dedicated to providing students, faculty, and staff with the unmatchable experience of the outdoors. We offer different trips throughout the year of varying skills and length – from rock climbing to white water rafting, to just taking a walk in the woods. We want participants to not only learn useful outdoor skills but to also bring diversity to the club experience.

The NEC Adventure Bound Club offers in-house training for wilderness first aid, hard and soft skills, and team building programs for groups, teams, and surrounding schools. We specialize in Leave No Trace ethics, sustainability, and wilderness experiences. While taking part in the Adventure Bound Club, we provide the means for everyone to become involved. We encourage people to try new things that enhance curiosity and personal growth within the outdoors.
