Outdoor Recreation Summer Adventures

Celebrating 50 Years!

Get Outdoors. Get Active. Explore More!

Outdoor Recreation (ODR) provides morale-building, lifestyle-oriented activities, and programs for service members worldwide. Dating back to 1971, ODR offers programs for everyone.

Patrons can enjoy everything from mountain biking, hiking, and fishing to ATV rides and more. ODR also provides programming for wounded warriors, children with special needs, and Soldiers returning from deployment. In fact, ODR’s Warrior Adventure Quest uses outdoor challenges to help recently redeployed Soldiers safely integrate into a non-combat environment.

ODR lets Soldiers and Families take a break from their everyday surroundings, develop new skills, and learn about lifetime leisure programs through all its offerings.

Explore the possibilities with Fort Greely Outdoor Recreation Summer Adventures.
