GCC Outdoor Adventure Club

GCC students: Need a break from schoolwork? Join us to meet new people, relieve stress and get outside for some fun adventures!

Adviser: Teresa

Mission: The purpose of the Outdoor Adventure Club at Genesee Community College is to promote outdoor activity and learning. We want to help GCC students to get outdoors and into nature – away from the television, texting and video games. We also want to provide a place for students to meet other students with similar outdoor interests and allow them to share their experiences. Exposure and education is our main mission with this Club!
