Outdoor Adventure Programs (OAP)
Let Outdoor Recreation plan it! Try something new and different and get away from your same old routine. Let us know what you want to do; we can plan almost anything!
Active Duty and Reservists are eligible for discounted program prices through the three programs offered through the R4R Program:
Single Airman Programs: The Single Airman Programming Initiative (SAPI) provides resources that foster a strong culture, mission, and sense of community among single (or geographically single) Active Duty members.
RecOn Programs: These programs are often outdoor-centric, adrenaline-charged, or stress-reducing, and are exclusive through Outdoor Recreation Centers. Only Active Duty and Reserve Component members and their direct dependents are eligible.
Deployed Affected Programs: Deployed Affected Programming aims to provide relief to deployed-affected, dependent-restricted Air Force personnel and their families from the challenges of deployment. Eligible from time of deployment orders up to one year following the return of the service member.
*Registration and payment are required prior to the day of the trip. All trips are subject to change due to factors beyond the control of Outdoor Recreation.
Outdoor Recreation offers a wide range of recreational equipment for a small service charge to all active duty military, retired military, reservists, civilian employees, and family members 18 years of age or older. Campers and camping equipment, picnic gear, sporting equipment, outdoor games, bicycles, and other recreational supplies are available for rent.
