Recharge for Resiliency (R4R)

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.
