We live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country and our outdoor recreation – called Venture Out – is an excellent way to see the area, explore, and be active. We provide fun, safe, and educational outdoor services to students, faculty, staff, and community members. We specialize in exciting outdoor adventures, quality rental gear at unbeatable rates, and valuable resources to help you plan your own perfect adventure.

Venture Out offers extensive outdoor resources on local, regional, and national recreation opportunities. We have a variety of brochures and books on hiking, backpacking, and camping in the New River Valley including information on all of the Virginia State Parks and National Forests.
