Make Adventure Your Career with Outdoor Recreation Management at CapU

Capilano University's Outdoor Recreation Management Diploma can help make your dream of working in nature a reality! The Outdoor Recreation Management program takes two years of full-time studies, and starts in September.

Here are 5 reasons why the Outdoor Recreation Management program is so great for students who have a love of adventure:

1. Experience learning in nature

What better way to understand outdoor recreation management than by immersing yourself in the environments you will be working with?

Outdoor classes offer a unique opportunity to learn theory and practical skills while surrounded by the beauty of nature.

2. Interactive curriculum

In this program, you will take courses in diverse subjects, including financial planning, experiential education, entrepreneurship, outdoor guiding and risk management.

These courses, coupled with your love for nature, will equip you for various career paths, such as an adventure tour guide, outdoor educator, park ranger, recreation programmer, rescue technician, tour operator, parks and recreation officer, or wilderness therapist.

3. Specialize in outdoor adventures

Expand your expertise in select skills courses, where you'll grow your abilities in alpine travel, avalanche skills, backpacking, sea kayaking, and winter travel.

After completing your diploma, your classes ladder directly into the Bachelor of Tourism Management program, so you have the option of finishing your degree at CapU.

4. Hands-on training

Students in our program don't just learn from textbooks; they have a hands-on opportunity in their co-op work experience to seamlessly transition from student life to your exciting new career in the great outdoors.

5. Gain the skills to thrive

Surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of nature, students are motivated to connect with their surroundings, think creatively and embrace new perspectives.
